We have socialist/Commie rate of tax's in Ireland with Socialist/Commie value for money services for it.Marginal tax rates of about half the Irish salary kick in just above the average salary. Even in tax mad France, that marginal tax rate applies to only the top salaries. There is some tax relief on big Dublin houses as Irish house property taxes are very low by international standards. The top marginal Irish income tax is a major disincentive to work for professionals and trades workers. Income taxes in English speaking countries are generally a lot lower for Irish expats, a barrier to returning.
