I know it's a pretty high tax (20%?). But what things that you buy do you pay it on? In the US we have "sales tax" which is about 8.3% in my state, higher/lower in others. But we don't pay it on food or medical supplies. We don't pay it on services like haircuts, fixing your car, doctor's appointments. Just curious as to what you pay that (high) tax on. Also our sales tax doesn't go to our federal gubment, it goes to the state, county, and city gubments. I bet most of yours goes to the feds right?
