Hello Enthusiasts TST!✨
Have you ever wondered about getting a tax amnesty for the rest of your life? This was possible if you lived in the Mauryan Empire (321-185 B.C.). The Mauryan Empire held an annual competition each year for their citizens and the prize was lifetime tax amnesty instead of gold or any other precious things.
The competition was held by the government to solicit citizen’s ideas on how to solve government problems. The citizens who got their idea chosen and implemented received a tax amnesty for the rest of their life. People believe that the lifetime tax amnesty wasn’t an effective way since the citizens didn’t have any more incentive to solve more problems once they already became a winner.
