Conclusions that have emerged from this analysis are: PIT is the tax that has changed more than any other tax, 9 times, almost every 2.8 years. There is strong correlative link between her and the dynamics of GDP in percentage and in absolute figure. This is because PIT is reflected in G (government purchases), and G is part of GDP.
