ay taxesThe typical British worker slogs away for four hours and 21 minutes of eac
h working day just to pay their taxes. A study based
on a single British earner
- who pulls in the av
erage wage, consumes the average amount
of booze and cigarettes, drives a Ford Mondeo and travels to work by public transpor
t - found it takes an hour and 16 mi
nutes to cover their income tax alone. Among other charges, national insurance takes a further 43 minutes.
e TaxPayers Alliance, which conducted the research, said: People now work right into t
he afternoon just to pay the tax man.
