Custom office tax

Just a question: Why do some corps set unreasonable tax rates on COs? For example Pandemic Horde has some COs in cloud ring that have 100% tax rate. Is it just to keep people for using those planets or do people actually pay that rate? I would also assume but I am not sure that P-Horde members do not pay the same rate.

Its to get exclusive use. Anybody willing to pay 100% is a bonus


Because they can.

So you freely admit to using off limits facilities?

Their structure, their rules…

Bottom line…

Simple. I don’t want others to gather the planets resources so i set the tax to 100%. When I ( or the few others I want to gatjher the resources) am ready to get my own resources from the planet I change the tax temporarily to a for me reasonable tax level (or If I am the corp owner I can just leave it at 100% of course). In that way I control the planet.

To clarify the reason I asked as the other day in for sale forums s guy was selling 17 CO and he was talking about them as a good source of passive income. I know their structure their rules and because they can, I was just wondering if people did this just to make planets for basically private use as one would have to be brain dead to use these CO at this price.

Customs taxes can be set at different rates for people who are blue to the alliance/corp. For neutrals, you can set it at 100%, for +5.0, you can set at 20% and +10.0 at 5%. So yes, PH members will not pay the same as with neutrals.

As with everything, its based on location. When i used to own hisec Pocos, i had like a dozen, but they only paid for themselves after like 6 months. I ended up selling my Pocos at like 80 mill a piece, so i got my ISK back and then some. But thats 100 mill a poco, every 6 months. Thats not very good.

No, its for corp/alliance use.

Thing is, with PI, its shared by everyone. So more people, less resources. If youre willing to pay 100%, then go for it, they wont mind sharing. Otherwise, they dont want non-alliance players taking up resources.
