Have you got insurance? There's a tax for that, 21%.
Want to buy groceries? 6% tax.

Company car? Add 14%-25% (depending on CO2 emissions) of the new value of the car to your income and pay 30-52% tax over that!
Then there are the taxes on a corporate level that get included into product price, which you don't actually see on the bill!
It all amounts to a total tax pressure of more then 75% on the worker. In Holland we have the highest tax pressure in the world.
