    This is an easy fix to remove the taxfree option from all towny ranks and change the towny "VIP" rank to a rank called "TAXFREE". This will not only solve the problem but remove the confusion of TOWNY VIP rank and SERVER VIP rank for new players.

    Done in 5 mins or less:
    Step #1 open the TownyPerms.yml
    Step #2 remove "- towny.tax_exempt" from all ranks
    Step #3 rename "VIP" to "TAXFREE" and add the "- towny.tax_exempt".
    Will take effect on next server reboot.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't that just make this proposed tax the same as current tax?
    From what I've read, it seems that people want it to be editable by the Mayor, meaning it would require a separate variable to reference a different amount. Also, I doubt that a tax as small as the standard resident tax would be great enough (if anything) to make a difference to the wellbeing of the town bank.

    Its a pain cause it appears in /t plots so you basically have to survey every plot. Often staff are the biggest owners of plots so it often makes a big difference. You can just give people the vip rank to make them tax free

    So just so I am getting this correct.



    Mayor (Tax Free)
    Co-mayor(Tax Free)
    Assistant (Taxed)
    Builder (Taxed)
    Recruiter (Taxed)

    VIP (Tax Free) also maybe change name from VIP to TaxFree or something similar ?

    Also doing this we would remove the ability of assistants to be able to give VIP(TaxFree) rank ????

    Let me know.

    The original concept is

    Mayor (optional)
    Co-mayor(optional)
    Assistant (optional)
    Builder (optional)
    Recruiter (optional)

    VIP (Tax Free) also maybe change name from VIP to TaxFree or something similar ?
    seeing as it's based around small-town design, mayor and comayor should definitely be able to be taxed (or there isn't a point to implementing this, the entire thread revolves around lazy mayors/comayors) ghost said my town almost fell yesterday, and (seeing as I'm banned) I can't really keep it up automatically atm, best-case, all ranks have taxes toggleable. Worst case, tax everyone and just give your high town staff VIP and it works the same
