If I have the basic trading taxes (3% Broker fee and 5% sales tax), I’m not in an NPC corp (so no npc tax), I (for example) trade in Jita, and considering that I:
-Place a buy order on that product [3% broker tax applied]
-I get the item [no tax]
-I place a sell order [3% bf applied again]
-I sell that product [5% sales tax]
Is it correct to say that I’m the facto paying an 11% tax on my wealth (3*2 + 5) and so I should only consider items that have more than an 11% difference in the sell/buy price ratio?
And if my order is not always fully completed (like 9/10 items sold or bought), don’t I lose more money? Or taxes follow the distributive property of multiplication
A similar thing goes for POCOS. Again, I’m in null sec, my player created corp has a POCO tax of 5%.
i extract (and refine) and export p1 stuff from 4 planets and Import them into a facory planet to refine into p3 and export the finished p3 again to sell it.
So then, am I paying 4 times + 2 that 5% tax or does the tax follow the distributive property of multiplication? or just something else I’m not totally understanding?
Feel free to correct any mistake and I’d be glad if you provided some examples.
