Community taxation

--develop this writeup--

basically the individual joins a community, some geographic restriction (e.g. same city) that community then collects the individuals taxes and rates in exchange for a small cut of those. This cut will then be used to projects aligned with the goals of that community.

That way religious institutions, gaming groups, neighbourhoods et al can contribute and be tied together.

Community meetings etc will foster community and improve social fabric.

Completely voluntary fraternity. Financial incentive.

Should pretty much offset itself against the cost of having current tax collection processes, with the small cost incurred for auditing communities.

good idea/bad idea? not sure yet.


sci-fi books to look at a later date.
