Description

Is a government plan to exempt new businesses from certain taxes legitimate in the eyes of Jewish law and ethics? A few notes regarding recognizing "in-kind" contributions to society in lieu of taxes, tax legislation which favours a particular sector, undercutting a neighbouring region in competition for a relocating business, and accepting a tax incentive when the business was going to move there anyway.
