In #japan , one can 'dedicate' their taxes to a certain area/town. For example people from the countryside living in Tokyo can dedicate to their home town. The home town can decide to give something in return, many say "thank you" in sending meat, sweets or other things.
A city with a toilet paper factory got especially many "tax dedications" this year, because the toilet paper they send out is out of stock..
