The theoretical models indicate that tax incentives should be given when external effects exist and can't be eliminated. The models also show that the tax incentive is superior to government direct spending in the correction of the external effects, while government direct spending is preferable to the tax incentives if strong external effects exist as in national defense and security.
We estimate the change of tax revenue with the input-output table when all VAT exempted goods convert to taxable goods. The foregone revenue is estimated to 3.2 trillion won in 1995 and 6.2 trillion won in 2000, indicating faster growth than GDP. Housing, government service, education, and health and medical service are the major sources of revenue loss when a single good converts from tax exemption to taxable item. This paper suggests that reinforcement of existing sunset clauses, strengthening of ex ante and ex post control, and introduction of tax expenditure budget for the reduction and efficiency of tax incentive.
