The French love to "activate" tax credits and other things.

But in this context I think you can get away with not translating it at all, because what has been eliminated is not the release but the provisions.

I think that "levée" or "suppression" is the translation for the term "release" in this phrase, as it means that the tax provision will be "abolished" in this case.

It seems from the context that we should not confound release with tax relief (which by the way is best translated by "dégrevement" in tax related issues) but release looks more like a liberation from, i.e. a non-application of, an existing tax provision which will no longer be honored in the new situation.
