Donald Trump didn't mention taxes that much in his acceptance speech of the GOP presidential nomination, but his assertion that Americans pay among the highest taxes in the world is not accurate.
That's according to the nonpartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget and others.
"As a share of the economy, the United States is nowhere close to the 'highest-taxed country in the world' and does not raise nearly as much tax revenue as other developed countries, many of which are in Europe," the group said in a blog post Friday.
Using that measure, U.S. tax revenues amounted to about 26 percent of gross domestic product, according to 2014 figures from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. That's well below the OECD average of 34 percent for developed countries.
