Where can I find a dataset describing taxation systems across countries? More specifically:

  • How many taxes businesses and individuals pay
  • Do individuals pay taxes directly to domestic tax agencies or their employers do that on their behalf (e.g., for income taxes)?
  • How often taxpayers fill tax refunds
  • Effective and nominal tax rates
  • What level of the government gets particular taxes

The World Bank reports time spent on tax filings and net tax rates, but not in depth.
