    Question on City Taxes

    What percentage of total City Income does the King get with MAX taxes for a city? And are coastal provinces the only thing you as a King should keep? And do taxes include incomes from ports and all the other stuff?

    If it's run by a mayor the base is 45%. I wouldn't keep any of them you get more money letting doges run them.

    No sense keeping cities as personal holdings anymore, unless you need the levies for some reason. The penalty doesn't make it worth using up the demesne slot.

    Max taxes are indeed 45%, and you get that from all of the City income. I would keep coastal cities in the sense that I keep the County as my personal holding and thereby collect taxes from all the rich cities located there. I tend to build a couple extra cities in coastal provinces if I have the space, and give them all to one mayor so he'll crank out improvements. I've never had a mayor worry me in terms of revolts, and more can be done to keep one happy than three.

    Oh, that's what I meant. I don't actually hold cities on my own. I was just wondering if when I get Counties, I should focus on getting an all coastal demense. As in, do I get 45% of the port income and the town hall income, or just 45% of the Town Hall income.

    You get 45% of the ''city'' income.

    If you build town halls and ports, that will increase your city income. And you get a direct tax from that. So yeah. You get taxes from the guild halls and ports at a 45% tax rate (if you have that tax rate applied).

    So lets say a base city has a tax income of 10

    your tax is 50% (not possible but easy to calculate)

    you would get 5 gold

    you build a guildhall (+6) and a port (+6)

    you would get 22 x 0.5 = 11 gold income from taxes

    To simply know how much a city is worth just click on the barony and you should see its income and levy levels. Just duplicate the tax income number with your tax levels and you got what you were looking for.
