Tax Incentive
A tax incentive is an aspect of a country's tax code designed to incentivize or encourage a particular economic activity. Tax incentives can have both, positive and negative impacts. Among the positive benefits, if implemented and designed properly, tax incentives can attract investments. Other benefits include increased employment, higher number of capital transfers, research and technology development, and improvement to less developed areas. Though it is difficult to estimate the effects of tax incentives, they can, if done properly, raise the overall economic welfare through increasing economic growth and government tax revenue (after the expiration of the tax holiday/incentive period). However, tax incentive can cause negative effects if they are not properly designed and implemented.[1] There are four typical costs to tax incentives; resource allocation costs, compliance costs, revenue costs and corruption costs
