So i noticed when you sell something in the game auction you are charged sales tax. I dont mind paying a small fee but the fact is the fee isnt that small
I sold an item for 5000 and the sales tax took out 1000
i sold another item for 60,000 and the sales tax took out 12,000!!!!!!!!!!! wutthefarg

seriously that is too much of a tax. it isnt like the system really needs all that fake money or something. please lower the tax G1 it is too high and is just robbing people.

or is there a server that is stacking fake money and hoarding it all for itself?

25% sales tax is annoying and doesn't make any sense

10-15% would be more realistic tbh :)

What about leasing weapons and cars? I spend over 20k a week just to keep my weapons use-able. :)

Did sales tax change? I've been under the impression that it's always been 20%.
Perhaps I'm returning..

Yeah, 20% is to much. But right now, it's the best way to stall inflation.

Compared to the old costs of the permaweapons and multislot cars? That's just cookiemoney.

Not even cookiemoney... that's just.. a bottle of water.
