Citadel Compression Tax?


(Dirty Bint) #1

Most things in Citadels can be profited from: Markets, Clone Bays, Reprocessing, Corp Offices. However compression is always free, regardless of any other taxes.
It would seemingly be simple to implement a compression tax, just like reprocessing by working out the market value of the goods and setting a rate based on that?
This is just a basic thought on how it could be done. It seems to simple to work though if no one else has suggested it. Maybe someone else has a better idea on how to go about this?

I myself have used and abused citadels to compress ore/ice and I know plenty of others who have also owned up to doing it and reprocessing elsewhere. I feel the citadel owners are losing out on this one.

Search is your friend, this has been asked for before.
The main argument against this is that you end up double taxing the miner. Since you then as a miner pay both a compression tax & a refining tax.

I haven’t found it and I did a search.

Personally I compress in one place then move and refine in a different system.
This means one service is free and the owner loses out and the other I have to pay for.
