The survey was commissioned by Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, which made the results publicly available in June this year. The Total Tax Contribution Japan survey 2009 is the analysis of the survey results by PwC Japan Tax.
In the light of ongoing discussions to reduce the corporate income tax rate, combined with broadening of the tax base and tax reforms around social security contributions, Total Tax Contribution surveys are useful in gathering factual data for further insight in the actual level of tax burdens in Japan.
