hi there, i wanted to ask: when a mine extracts, cost for that are deducted, but also 5% tax is deducted. Wasn't it so that costs for the extraction was deducted and the 5% tax went to the planet controller?

I now pay 105% every time, and no income is generated from the extraction costs?

Tax goes to the planet controller, only when it is a government faction.

2.3/ Collecting taxes from a planet's economic activities « Back To Top
In many operational operations or transactions happening on a planet (mining, prospecting, construction...), there is a cost part due to the planetary tax level. This fee is not lost. If the planet is controlled by a faction, this fee is automatically transferred to that faction, even if it is not a government-type faction.

Either a bug or the rules need updating.

Yes. That. And so was it in the past. Since an undeclosed time the extraction costs, lets say 100.000 is deducted, and then taxes of 5% is deducted.

In the past the 100.000 was deducted and 5.000 came in the factions' bankaccount wich controlled the planet?

When its a non-government, it goes into darkness as it were.


Just to clarify the point, the miner gets charged direct cost of mining, while the tax portion is sent to the "Tax Administrator" or [Government]. Its two separate payments made upon successful mining events. The cost is still influenced by the tax rate, so broadly its within the 100% of the cost of extraction, with tax taken out as part of the process, so cost paid is [100% - Tax] and then Tax paid separately. Not [100% + Tax].

Production should have the same effect I believe.
