There is a fixed parochial tithe, which is payable to the rector (and distributed to the vicar and vestry) of the parish, at a rate of 10 per cent of tithable income.

Taxation on certain net profits is levied after tithe deductions. The rates for taxation are provided in the Taxation Orders issued by the Crown in accordance with the Taxation of Profits Act. The marginal tax brackets are:

£0 — £233 : 1/– ꝑ £1 (5 per cent)
£233 — £498 : 2/– ꝑ £1 (10 per cent)
£498 — £1000: 4/– ꝑ £1 (20 per cent)
£1001 — £1498: 6/– ꝑ £1 (30 per cent)
£1498 — : 8/– ꝑ £1 (40 per cent)

Paupers are exempt from income tax and tithes.

There is no income tax here. Instead, there is the Raid Tax, which is a 10% levy on any loot that is traded in for Energon at an official Raid Dropoff Point (the only super-convenient way to unload loot that consists of raw materials, which is the type we usually bring back).

This isn't much of a bother to our raiders, assuming they got hauls big enough to have made the endeavor worthwhile. However, it is a bit of a consolation prize to those who suck at raiding and therefore have to get actual jobs, since those types don't have to pay tax at all.

Note that the government isn't trying to encourage employment. Far from it! It just knows that nobody will declare any taxes, so the only way to be sure to collect the money is to have a tax man stand at each Raid Dropoff Point and take the government's part right then and there.
No war RPs; no open RPs.

Our real income tax is set for most people at 10%, with a top tax rate of 20% for the richest people. Any higher would be counterproductive and encourage large scale tax evasion, drive out the rich, and weaken the country. We do have VAT on goods, and a few other low level taxes, but they are not set too high.

The Government of Gandoor maintains a progressive tax rate, currently ranging from 0 to 40%, with the highest tax bracket to increase to 60% by 2030, per the 2020 income tax reforms.

(Park Sang-Hee, who will become Prime Minister on 11 October, has proposed an alternative plan which will reintroduce a 90% top income tax bracket, which had previously been in place from 1938 until 1982, although has she has yet to take office, this plan has not even been formally proposed to the Forum)

$350,000- 55%

It should be noted that estate taxes in the Empire are even more starkly progressive, with only 20% of families paying any estate tax at all, and half of them pay only 50%, whereas the other, upper half pay 75%. Romans believe that taxes are a civic duty, an act of patriotism, and that "to whom much is given, much is also required" for the res publica, the public good.

It should also be noted that in many cases, wealthy Romans lower their own tax obligations through clientele and patronage, a system in which the rich directly subsidize individual fellow citizens in return for their assistance in errands, favors, etc.

The Citizenry of Narland rejects serfdom and Feudalism en toto such as income Taxes and Payroll Taxes, They are seen as Marxist subversion to destroy Liberty and Justice of the People in general and the livelihood of the Workers in particular. In 1954 the Commonwealth of Narland unanimously passed the Fair Income Tax Act. Only self-declared Socialists (and official members of socialistic parties) are subject to a graduated income tax. For everyone else it is voluntary. The Socialist must sign a certificate of indenture to the Commonwealth Tax Enforcement Bureau subject to their own court system should they violate their promise.

Free Citizens of the Commonwealth:
0% Income and Payroll Taxes

Socialists and Felons on Parole
1st Percentile of the year's aggregated sum of Commonwealth Income:
1%-19% scheduled in 19 graduated steps
2nd Percentile of the year's aggregated sum of Commonwealth Income:
20%-38% scheduled in 19 graduated steps
3rd Percentile of the year's aggregated sum of Commonwealth Income:
39%-57% scheduled in 19 graduated steps
4th Percentile of the year's aggregated sum of Commonwealth Income:
58%-76% scheduled in 19 graduated steps
5th Percentile of the year's aggregated sum of Commonwealth Income:
77%-95% scheduled in 19 graduated steps
No Exemptions.

So far no one in the Commonwealth of Narland has volunteered to join the commitment to a Socialist Graduated Income Tax, and the Indenture Bureau offices remain vacant. Felons by definition are wards of the State and must pay a graduated income tax as punishment for their crime until they are off of parole. This part is enforced by the local Prison Bureau

The Republic of Yorkshire has 4 income tax brackets (adjusted for inflation and converted from YSP to USD)

$0 - $15,000 Personal Allowance (taxed at 0%)
$15,000 - $60,000 10%
$60,000 - $185,000 30%
$185,000+ 35%

The personal allowance is also taxed at 50% rather than at 0% for those earning over $125,000.

VAT currently stands at 20% (or at 0% for exempted goods), corporate tax at 15%.

In Deeper Grea, all individuals pay a flat 25% tax on all incomes over $20,000. There are no tax deductions permitted, except that a citizen may place up to 15% of their earned income for that tax year into a tax deferred account, taxes to be paid on the amount withdrawn in the year of withdrawl. This is done to encourage investment for the future, specifically retirement as Depper Grea only pays a $15,000/year pension to all citizens older then 65.
