I don't aware that the Irish tax scheme is so "HIGH". See below...

I read some article which mentions the incomes in Ireland are currently under-taxed and the Irish workers are the lowest taxed in Europe. Is it true?So the rest of the Europe countries have the higher Tax Scheme... Perhaps we should be happy to be Malaysian...

Hmm, Malaysians' taxes are among the lowest, to be honest. I'm wondering why do people still complain that much. Some says that our gov is not using the money as efficiently as those developed countries (with high taxes)...but they know that Irish gov pays $$ to smokers in order to ask them to stop smoking? Or UK paying $$ to a UK PR holder to feed his family...but his entire family is in Russia? :P

Perhaps they do not aware the they're among the lowest. I don't know about this if my wife is not relocated to Ireland. We may have heard about it but we probably choose to ignore it. Who want to say our government tax is low? It is like you're complaining your salary is high. :)

I don't aware of that,is this how Ireland and UK government spend their money? I heard they use those money to build church and building as well.
