9% sales tax (I don't see anything about exemptions)There will always be exemptions. I got this info from several wiki articles.In France the VAT is 19.6% in general and 5.5% on food.The VAT in Sweden is 25% on most stuff but a mere 12% on food. French income tax (in 2009) takes 30% of taxable income over €26,000 and 40% over €70,000. Not high enough for you? How about Sweden, where typical income tax is 48% subject to a few credits where applicable. Paying just about half of your earnings right off the top and then 25% of what you spend may seem like a lot, but at least health care is "free."--fleg
