Everybody moans about paying their taxes, but Belgians have more reason than most to complain.

Data from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development shows that Belgium has the highest income taxes in the developed world.

The average Belgian worker paid 42% of his salary back to the government in income tax and social security last year. That's actually down from 42.4% in 2014.

Your obsession is showing. If you want, I can put in a good word should you be interested in Belgian citizenship.

Looking in the mirror, you don't like what you see, eh?? ;)

Since you are a bald eagle, I must admit your head is very shiny.
