Your tax details on the web

Now this is quite interesting. Would you mind exposing your tax and income details on a public website? I am slightly ambivalent over it. While on one side, I can well understand the problems of privacy, none-of-your-business, danger, etc. etc. but on the other hand, just the tax paid by individuals and companies is public income, and one could argue, that if you anonymise the individual, then we should be able to get much granularity down to a level which provides good information while saving individual privacy. Obviously, this does not apply to firms.

All this to be taken with a grain of piquant salt!!!
