Make the taxes more realistic.

I have 26M right now. I have to pay 15% tonight = 4M
If I throw away 1M right now I will pay 10% taxes = 2.5M

That is ridiculous!

Just buy a few sets of equipment...  ;)

But true, could be improved. Don't know if it's hard to program though.

Been suggested before to use the "progressive"tax system with boxes. Which would be something like this:

For someone with 15 million:
First 10million: 0% tax = 10,000,000 * 0% = 0
10-20 million:  10% tax = 5,000,000 * 10% = 500,000
Total 500,000

Someone with 55 million:
First 10million: 0% tax = 10,000,000 * 0% = 0
10-20 million:  10% tax = 10,000,000 * 10% = 1,000,000
20-30 million:  20% tax = 10,000,000 * 20% = 2,000,000
30-40 million:  40% tax = 10,000,000 * 40% = 4,000,000
40-50 million:  50% tax = 10,000,000 * 50% = 5,000,000
50+million: 60% tax = 5,000,000 * 60% = 3,000,000
Total: 15,000,000 tax.

Even the tax office (at least in Australia) doesn't make the calculation so hard Sjiz. Don't know how Oska has done the formula in the game, however, it may be as simple as what I had suggested (a simple -70k, -370k, etc addin to the formula).

Interesting, perhaps my explaining is bad :p. Its just using brackets and not the total amount to calculate tax. You fill up one bracket en everything above that gets taxed a little more. How big you make the brackets is up to osca.

Actually it is not very complicated, and exists in many countries today (including US). It is called "Progessive taxation", and it is aimed at creating a fair(er) taxation system when:
a. - you want people with more money to pay a higher % (and this is currently the case in CFF), and...
b. - ...to avoid un-fair treatment for those who are in the situation described by Telamon (juts over the limit of the higher taxation bracket)

It is really not that difficult if you take a minute to understand it:
Telamon has 26.000.000:
for the first 1.000.000 - 0%=0 tax
for the 1.000.000  - 10.000.000 tax is 7%:this is 9.000.000 * 7% = 630.000
for 10.000.000  - 25.000.000 tax is 10%: this is 15.000.000 * 10% = 1.500.000
for 25.000.000 - 26.000.000 tax is 15%: this is 1.000.000 * 15% = 150.000
Total tax: 2.280.000

He wouldn't need to do the "tax evasion" by throwing away 1.000.000, because that would only save him 150.000.

Or maybe Osca wants people to throw money away. I am not sure what the fiscal policy of CFF is :D

The explanation is spot on, and is exactly what it is.  Just when it's calculated, they say

>$25m to $50m = $2,130k + 15c for every dollar over $25m.  Essentially, all of the progressive rates before that level is pre-calculated.

In a formula, depending on how Oska wrote the taxation up, a simple reverse addon would do the same.
eg >$25m to $50m = 15% minus $1.62m

Another suggestion: make achievements for NT managers who win their NT competition.

I wanted to add to the taxes discussion...I fell into this very predicament as the end of Season 36.  After having sold most of my Team and after the final race, I was just over 25,000,000 Euros.  As such, I would have been taxed at the 15% rate for the entire amount (approx. 3.768 million Euros).  To "evade" this additional 5% tax, I purchased equipment for 140,000 Euros, bringing me to just under 25,000,000 Euros.  I was now only taxed at the 10% rate (approx. 2.5 million Euros).  In effect, by wasting 140,000 Euros on equipment I did not need after the season ended, I saved myself 1.268 million Euros.

Maybe it pays to be an accountant    ;D
