Is there a good substitute for one of the "in terms of"s in the following sentence?

Income taxes have costs in terms of the welfare loss of people who pay taxes and also benefits in terms of tax revenue.

Can I use "as" instead of the second "in terms of"?

Income taxes have costs in terms of the welfare loss of people who pay taxes and also benefits as tax revenue.
