A thought to curb landfill and pollution problems, by tax credits.
Full Circle Production Tax Credit.
If there's one tax loophole worth considering for corporations, it might be this:
Any producer of any article that assures its return in or with its container, or just its container, should it be spent; along with all extraneous parts but its mailing carton, to the original place of production in order to reincorporate it, as with returnable bottles, or usable machine parts, or to recycle it at the producer's cost, could deduct that cost from state and federal income taxes plus a "pollution reward" credit of ten percent of that credit.
The savings to the nation could be astronomical, considering landfill and pollution problems, etc. In addition, it would encourage the redesign of products to conform to pollution control.
Further credits might be extended should the product be toxic.
