    Pretty straightforward suggestion, I know in most towns the staff are already putting money in the bank, I'd rather it just be automatic. Just want the option to toggle taxes/autodonations (1k per day from all staff for example). Very helpful to smaller towns like Aincrad or Bastion (since most/all of the players in that size town are staff) and larger towns alike!

    I believe it would be a useful feature to charge recruiters, builders, and assistants (with the current towny ranks). Co-mayors, mayors, and vip could be tax free. (Since co-mayor can just withdraw anyways) It would give a purpose to the vip rank in not paying taxes.

    This means it's up to your mayor. Extremely doubtful that you're actually worth the money your town loses in potential taxes

    I think @CluelessKlutz ‘s idea is great, and thinl this would be a great way to help smaller towns develop.
    Now, now, let’s be kind

    I think that's a good idea, tbh I believe builders/recruiters should always be charged, and vip can be given to anyone to exempt them from tax, if need be

    For me paying taxes is like surgery. Its much better for me to be under anesthetics and unaware of my surgery, then to have to perform the surgery on myself while conscious; in the same way I’d rather be unaware that I am paying taxes then be completely vigilant and paying the taxes myself via /t deposit
    People who are giving -1s should take a moment and notice that Zamos has said that it will be completely optional to your mayor/comayor. The feature is more for towns like me and Zamos’ town, where there are almost no other residents and neither of us are really above each other. It would be best for single town owners so that they can have their bank growing w/o having to remember.
    One downside is that towns will take significantly longer to fall (*clueless gasps*) so perhaps the taxes should be deactivated on high staff that have been inactive for 30+ days or so. This will make inactive towns able to fall instead of giving towns near immunity.

    couldn't have said it better, to rephrase it:
    If you or a loved one is in a small town, you may be entitled to not have to put 10k in the bank three times a week

    this is a bad idea, us town staff already work our butts off trying to keep our towns stable
    even people like me, as I am a recruiter of Athens

    get off your high horse lol we don't care
    this is more about a convenient way to sustain bank money than costing you money

    I feel like I need to remind everyone again:

    >>THIS WOULD BE AN OPTIONAL FEATURE<<

    If you work as hard as you say in Athens, i am sure Vex would be a reasonable person and not charge you taxes since you are an asset to the town.
    If you work hard and your mayor values your work properly, you shouldn’t be worrying. If you are a good worker and are being treated unfairly, I am sure other towns would accept you.

    I'm in a similar situation, it sounds like. Only people in my town are me and onceuponajano and she's my co-mayor so no one pays taxes. This would be really useful. Would this be a standard amount or could the mayor set it?
