Provincial base tax in 1444.

Taxation is one of the three primary sources of monthly income alongside production and trade. Each province has a base tax (and eventually an additional tax income) and a tax income efficiency. Taxation is increased by national tax income besides tax income from provinces so that:

Provincial tax income[edit | edit source]

Monthly tax income from provinces is:

The tax income efficiency includes local modifiers such as buildings and wrong-culture penalties and also national tax modifiers like Advisor Treasurer.png treasurer advisor. The Local autonomy.png local autonomy is applied multiplicatively, so if a province has 100% local autonomy, the province tax amount will be of 0%.

Base tax[edit | edit source]

Base tax.png Base tax is one of the three components of Development.png development in a province, and is an abstract representation of the size and wealth of the population. Players may increase base tax by spending Administrative power.png administrative monarch points. Some events and decisions also affect base tax.

−1% Local great project upgrade time
Local construction time −1% Local construction time

Local tax income[edit | edit source]

The local tax income (‘yearly tax income’) is a flat amount added to the base tax. The Native longhouse.png Longhouse native building (Yearly tax income.png +1 yearly tax income) is the only source of local tax income besides some modifiers of events.

Tax efficiency[edit | edit source]

The percentages are additive so, for example, if a province in an Government republic.png Oligarchic republic (+5%) is a Core Icon.png core city (+25% and +75%) but it is Combat blockade.png blockaded (−75%), the total tax efficiency will be 30%.

National tax income[edit | edit source]

National tax income (‘yearly tax income’) is a special tax income that is not tied to individual provinces. It is added last to your tax income after tax efficiency is applied, so it isn't affected even by national modifiers.

Yearly tax income.png Conditions
+12.0 Base for every nation
+10.0 with Gov peacock throne.png Mughal Diwan government reform and assimilated East Bantu culture group
−6.0 Subject nation
+3.0 Free city
+2.0 the emperor of the Holy Roman Empire per free city
+0.5 the emperor of the HRE with ‘Enact Gemeiner Pfennig’ imperial reform for every prince
+0.5 Electors of the HRE with ‘Geteilte Macht’ imperial reform for every prince

Several events, such as a successful hunt for the seven cities, and missions also can grant a yearly tax income.
