Induced taxes can be used by a government as an automatic economic stabilizer. For example, when the level of real GDP falls substantially, which is indicative of an economic recession, the government can reduce taxes to help spur economic growth.
By reducing taxes in the short-term, an economy's consumption expenditure will increase, causing a rise in the short-term GDP.
