South Africa is amongst the 10 most heavily taxed countries in the world (tax-to-GDP ratio), according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
Personal taxes have increased by 125% over the past decade.
Duvenage says taxpayers are paying more but getting less in return.
He believes Government has gone too far in tapping the individual tax-paying base in South Africa.
