Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Not very low, but significantly lower, btw. originally I wanted to say, that other forms of taxes do play a significant role to judge about the general progressiveness of the system. The numbers you posted just now, affirm a mixed picture, but with generally lower taxes than in Germany.

Generally lower, but, when compared to the flat-taxers, is it significantly lower?

I note however that Slovenia is a less obvious argument as I originally thought: the present income tax reflects tax cuts by current right-wing government, and even if those were less 'ambitious' than original proposals, the biggest gift to the rich was the elimination of a top income tax rate of 50%.
