This post is going to explain how the tax system works and why it is a feature on the Earth SMP survival server.

Why is there a tax system?

The tax system has been added to ensure that as people play the server, their wealth does not exponentially grow, meaning new players have a hard time getting started within the economy.

How do I view my tax bracket?

By running the command /tax you will receive information about your current tax bracket.

An example of the 10% tax bracket from the /tax command.

How is tax collected?

When selling items to the server through command such as /shop, /sell hand or /sell hand, tax is calculated and subtracted from the final value. Other places where tax is taken is from sales on the auction house.
