EU15 and Switzerland are two examples of high and, respectively, low taxation in Europe. It is then interesting to compare the trends that have characterized - in these two different situations - the tax burden, both total and disaggregated. Therefore the first part of the paper discusses the quantitative trends and the institutional developments of the Swiss and of EU15’ tax systems, especially since the ‘90s. The paper then considers the interplay between European taxation and economic and financial crisis, both as to the origin of the crisis and as to its effects on levels and characters of the tax burden. The paper is closed by an assessment of recent proposals for tax reform. The goal is to avoid recessionary effects of the levels of revenues, which are now needed to stabilize public finances in Europe, damaged by the crisis.
