Progressive Tax
A Tax that takes a more percentage from the income of High-income people than it does from Low-income people.

Most income taxes are considered progressive.  progressive Tax is a Tax that imposes a greater percentual burden on the rich than on the poor. The opposite is a regressive Tax, which imposes a greater percentual burden on the poor than on the rich. Due to the very High level meaning of the term, there can be significant.
    
Progressive Tax need not  refer to something that grows as the numbers involved grow as is the case with progressive income Tax. A hypothetical Tax on luxury goods can have a flat rate (meaning that the Tax is same for a necklace worth 100.000 as it is for a necklace worth 1.000.000) and the Tax remains a progressive Tax. Yet the most commonly referenced form of progressive taxation is the personal income Tax, where people with more disposable income pay a higher percentage of that income in Tax than do those with less income.
