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?
“ 2.3/ Collecting taxes from a planet's economic activities Â« 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.
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].
