===Individual tax deductions===
 +
These are types of income, or uses of income, which the government has partly or fully exempt from tax, often to encourage some activity.  This can be thought of as "spent" tax revenue, although it's not quite that simple; there's no guarantee that removing the deduction would add that amount of revenue, because the presence of the deduction may be affecting taxpayers' spending habits.
