What is a Robot Tax?

 , updated on July 03, 2023
A robot tax is a tax on the use of automation technology or robotics. The rationale for such taxes is that human workers effectively compete with robots and automation for their jobs. As such, people are at a disadvantage because their salary requirements reflect the need to pay taxes. Other rationale include that robot taxes more accurately reflect modern economic production.
