So why isn't there a simple system that a corp can use, if it wants to and its members agree, which will automatically deduct from the income of a player and put that money into the corp coffers? Someone educate me, please.

Again, I am a total noob. Last night I got involved in a discussion on vent with some of our corp members and alliance members. Way over my head, I should have stayed out of that conversation because people got upset and I had no idea what was going on except that they were arguing about how members should pay dues or taxes or monies that the corp is supposed to receive from members. There was some discussion about "fairness", as in people who manufacture make more money and so they should pay more taxes...

Meanwhile poor dumb noob has this idea that the 10% he agreed to pay into the Corp he joined was "automagically" taken out of his profits whenever he sold something. Poor stupid noob, that is way too easy and way too much like the real world where unions get your dues before you get your pay check, wouldn't want anything so simple to be available to corps. Now poor stupid noob has to go back and figure out his taxes, I guess that part is kind of like real life though...

there is already a tax system in place

when u mission run or rat a percentage of the bounty (bounty must be over 100k isk) goes to corp tax fund

trading does not affect corp tax fund ... trading tax doesnt go into the corp wallet

like lifelongnoob said, there already is an automatic tax that's deducted from Bounties and Rewards...

As for Taxes from Miners and Traders, corporations usually have some mechanic like mandatory mining ops where all the ore goes to the corp...

Actually, you know what would be a perfect system, IMO ?

An option to set corp dues in the corp tab; Corp taxes are paid as they are right now; However, at the end of the month, and difference between the dues amount and what has been paid from rewards and bounties is automatically deducted from members accounts. Members with insufficient funds get an auto mail, as well as the CEO and directors.

*Ideal* option: Pre-dues-met tax and post-dues-met tax
Ex: Dues are 1,000,000 a month. Taxes are 10% until you hit 1 mill. After 1 mill, corp taxes are 5% (Or whatever the CEO sets)

Ideally, you should be able to create a "Tax Bracket" similar to a title and then assign members to a particular tax bracket.

The tax bracket describes what taxes they pay.

For example:
* Mission income 10%
* Bounties 10%
* Selling goods to the market 10%
* Selling contracts 10%
* Non-alliance player deposits into account 10%

If someone was a buy/sell trader, you would exempt them from the sales tax since it would hurt their margins too much, but you could leave it in place for the rest of your corp. (e.g., in my corp nobody does margin trading so I could tax everyone 10% of all sales)
