As UK workers we’re used to paying tax and national insurance out of our wages on a monthly basis, but have you ever worked out how much tax you really pay?

Alongside council tax and road tax we also pay 20% VAT on most goods we purchase, even if we want a sausage roll from a high street baker warmed up in the oven!

BT.com recently published an article that highlights how much tax we’re really paying and the figures certainly do stack up: http://home.bt.com/lifestyle/money/mortgages-bills/do-you-know-how-much-tax-you-are-actually-paying-11364066050252
