Luxury tax

States impose a separate (or increased) tax on certain products that are considered luxury goods. In addition to generating income, these taxes also have a steering effect and are intended to limit the demand for luxury goods. In Germany, a form of luxury tax was levied as part of sales tax from 1918-1923. Currently, Australia and South Korea are examples of countries that levy such taxes.
