Taxation in Bosnia has shifted over time, depending on the government that was in power. During the Ottoman Empire, the most common tax was dhimmi, which was a tax on Christians levied by the Ottoman authority. During the Yugoslav era taxation was similar to that of the rest of the Soviet, which typically relied heavily on a turnover tax and taxes paid by enterprises. In case of this two taxes they respectively made up 50% and 5% of total revenue in 1963.[7]
