The expensive nature of populous infrastructure upkeep has triggered me to do a half-assed review of the tax rates.
Below is each facility listed by experts/tax category on the left, then the same thing on the right but with a weighting applied to each facility based on whimsical guestimates of the possible construction proportions on Promitor.
Next, I list the sums and apply a tax rate per tier and a weighting per category to reach a SUM tax rate that I will apply to the planet.
The category weighting is loosely based on our current tax rates which I had calculated to yield a roughly 1% of sale value tax per category.
These rates are up for discussion and I’m happy to continue refining them. For now, the rates just need to be increased.
