Men paid substantially more in taxable income compared to women in 2012, according to the Tax Administration.
 
Men's share of taxable income was 56%, while women's share was 44%.
 
The difference in taxable income between men and women was, however, narrower compared to the difference in taxable capital income.
 
Capital income tax share of men stood at 68%, compared to 32% of women.
 
Men's proportion in paid taxes was 61%, compared to 39% for women.
 
The difference was least in retirees, in which women received as much as men.
 
However, there are more retired women than men, meaning they received on average fewer pensions than men.
