Definition from Wikipedia:
Regresiniai mokesčiai – mokesčiai, kurie didėjant pajamoms, gaunant didesnį pelną, turint ar įgyjant vertingesnį turtą mažėja.

Example sentence(s):

  • Regresiniai mokesčiai - tai tokie mokesčiai, kurie mažėja tuo labiau, kuo daugiau uždirbi. - Pipedia  
  • Tenka priminti, kad pridėtinės vertės ir akcizų mokesčiai yra labai nepalankūs mažiau uždirbantiems. Kiek kartų mažiau uždirbi, tiek kartų tau šie regresiniai mokesčiai brangiau atsieina. - Kauno diena
