Definition: Taxes on production
Purchasing power parities
Taxes on the goods and services produced as outputs by resident enterprises that become payable as a result of the production of these goods or services - that is, taxes payable per unit of good or service produced such as excise duties and non-deductible VAT (Value added tax) - plus taxes that resident enterprises may pay as a consequence of engaging in production - taxes such as payroll taxes and taxes on motor vehicles. The former are called "taxes on products". The latter are called "other taxes on production".
