We have had 0% tax in SEADC for a good while now and starting from this moment we will be increasing our tax to 1%. Please note that this tax only applies to mission rewards and bounties so it will have no affect on miners, industrialists or marketers.
There are also proper reasons for this increase (if you can call 1% even an increase). The first one is that with the increasing amount of members and PvP fleets going out we have been relying on donations from both individual players and raised operations to cover the cost of SRP. However there is also a lot more to cover such as citadel fuels that is billions a month with the amount of citadels we have and will this will keep on raising as we add more citadels.
Second reason for this is that your HQ Maspah Central Station has been wardeced and is faced a possible attack on it. We are preparing to defend this station by mobilizing our combat doctrines. In order to buy the ships and to prepare for losses that we might encounter we will need a lot more money in the SRP wallet than we have needed with just MQP fleets and the other SRPd fleets we have had.
We are also feeling that 1% tax of your ratting or missions rewards is a reasonable amount for any players to donate in order to help out the corporation and the other fellow pilots they are flying with. Also even with this amount of tax our tax is very low compared to almos any other corporation in EVE that thend to keep their tax on 5 to 10 % which we will never do!
- Setting SEADC tax to 1%
- This is to help cover a tiny fraction of the expenses in SRP and service management
- Central Station is facing an attack and we are preparing for larger SRP with combat doctrines being mobilized
