Tax Holiday

A temporary suspension of a tax, especially a sales tax. Jurisdictions declare tax holidays at certain times of the year on the theory that doing so will stimulate consumer spending and thereby induce economic growth. Some U.S. states routinely declare tax holidays before school begins each year, for example. Critics of tax holidays maintain that they deprive the jurisdictions of revenue and that their effect on growth is overstated.
