Tax Holiday


Tax Holiday
A government incentive program that offers a tax reduction or elimination to businesses. Tax holidays are often used to reduce sales taxes by local governments, but they are also commonly used by governments in developing countries to help stimulate foreign investment.

Used in the hopes of increasing the gross domestic product (GDP) in developing countries, tax holidays are a way in which governments attract foreign investors. Tax holidays are often put in place in particular industries to help promote growth.
