Tax deduction

Tax deductions imply a reduction of your taxable income, which is the amount that will be used to calculate the amount of tax you have to pay.

Deductions are a tool used by governments to fiscally incentivize certain actions, such as investments in start-up companies or works to improve the energy efficiency of homes. In practice, they help you pay less tax.
