Feann:Taxation

From The Duchy of Feann Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Taxation is a complex subject that really can't be discussed until the Duke knows precisely what is going to be needed regarding public finance and what the major expenses are going to be. Having said that we could make some educated guesses.

The significant expenses are likely to be:

  • Army
  • Navy
  • Medical care
  • Transport
  • Police
  • Fire
  • Judiciary
  • Infrastructure
  • Civic Projects
  • Trade
  • Baronies

Tax will need to cover all of these expenses as well as giving the duchy a little bit of extra money in case an emergency happens that requires a lot of extra money to spent very quickly. The taxation system will be discussed at a future date, but a sales tax, an import tax and perhaps higher education costs could be ways of recouping costs on public services.
