The Third Estate. It represented 99 % of the population including the bougeoise, workmen and peasants. All of them had to pay taxes. The other two estates - the clergy and the nobility did not contribute to the budget, but through their privileges they did not pay taxes, their income and wealth came from others' labour and taxes and tolls.
