Here's the full report for Estonia:

http://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/resources/documents/taxation/gen_info/economic_analysis/tax_structures/2012/country/ee.pdf

It should be noteworthy that the adjusted number is actually 36.8%, which is a 2.5% discrepancy and more than double in compare to EU average (below 1%).

It means by adjusted numbers, the tax burden is higher then in the UK (36.3%), for instance.

Although the tax burden contracted in 2010 (like most of the EU) due to a big share of export in the economic growth, which is a good thing in general, what worries me a little bit that the 12.2% tax plus 12.2% social contributions paid by employers is quite high, wich gives less reason for salary growth, meanwhile indirect taxation is still high and VAT was increased.
