Tax deduction means the reduced tax from an individual or a business entity due to some specific expenses or investments. Tax deductions are provided by the government to encourage certain spending by the taxpayers as it reduces the amount of taxes for the taxpayers. Usually, these deductions are deducted from the gross income filed by the taxpayer and then the tax is calculated. Tax deductions are different from tax rebates.
