Hi Lex,

Public corps pay the same tax rate.

Depending on a country's financial situation, it is possible that the country will temporarily and automatically increase the tax level as an emergency measure, without the owner's knowledge.

As far as I know, when this 'crisis mode' happens, it does not appear on any country page, except for the P/L statement: if the tax rate is zero and the president happens to notice that they are receiving income from taxes, then they might question this, but there is no way that they can waive the additional taxes.

The only place (that I know of) that it appears is on an enterprise's 'profit, cash and debt' page - in an enterprise, this page seems to show the true tax rate. (For a country president, this page does not show the tax rate at all.)

I believe it's tied to a country's profitability, and I believe in theory the country is supposed to be making a loss before it happens. I have not read much about it on the SC forum, but some of my fedmates have experienced this and increasing country profits seems to fix it.

If the country in your case belongs to a friendly player, I'd wait it out and/or help them improve their finance - the additional taxes go away as soon as the country becomes profitable; if the player is unknown or inactive, I'd move the corp.
