Also, in most countries salaries and capital gains are taxed differently, usually payroll taxes (taxes on salaries) are higher. It gives advantage to those whos income comes from capital (dividends, stock options) and is disadvantage for those whos income is based on salary (cyclist, most spoertsmen etc).
I agree. If we are talking about dopingng, there is a common understaning what is fair and what is not. Not so much with taxes. Taxing is very arbitrary, rules and levels are very different in fifferent countries.Roude Leiw said:You ride a very high horse here. Tax laws of the countrys are what they are. You can argue until the sun sets if the tax law is fair or not for a given person, but that discussion would be more appropriate on some accountants forum.
