I was trying to understand how the EU is funded using their official website, but my limited understanding of economy makes it very hard to understand the money pathways from a single unit (the citizen) to the big organization (the EU). I know that each country contributes with some percentage from GDP, but I'm missing links.
So my questions is, is the EU funded (also) from citizen's taxes? Can anyone please help me to understand how one person's taxes are reaching or converted into EU funds? I would appreciate very much if someone can describe this path step by step.
