Prasong Poontaneat, director-general of the department, said on Monday.
Each person could have a tax deduction of up to Bt15,000 for his or her spending on accommodation, transport or buying local products.
If the Cabinet approves the proposal, to be submitted on Tuesday, it will be effective from January 1, to December 31 next year. Travellers will have to ask for receipts from vendors to qualify for the deduction.
The aim of the tax break is to increase the incomes of people in less-popular tourist destinations.
