It should be noted that these categories do not entail all the number of taxes that the Eagleland levies. The Eagleland's federal, state, and local governments collect additional revenue from custom user fees, duties and excises, which are relatively low by Pardesian standards. Owners of commercial ships are also obliged to pay Consular Shipping Duties set at $0.042 per metric ton of net tonnage up to 25,000 metric tonnes for their ship, above which no such duties are payable. In addition, a low tonnage tax is present for ships (with more than 100 GT in size), payable for a ship registered in the Eagleland. For Category A6 ships such taxes are based on the gross tonnage of the ship multiplied by a fixed amount of money per metric tonne, which is then multiplied by a coefficient which applies to ships older than 25 years. For Category B7 ships, no tonnage tax is levied. Furthermore, 138 municipalities, e.g. Limani Themistokleous, NSA and Athens, NSA, have, in view of their traffic congestion issues and/or environmental concerns, been imposing since 2007 a carbon tax on private cars and caravans with high carbon emissions equal to or more than 211g CO2/km, registered to permanent inhabitants of that area. Such taxes range from €4,200-€8,400 ($3,500-$7,000) p.a. per vehicle, depending on the region.

Belhavian tax experts and Ministry of the Treasury officials note that this list may be misleading because Belhavia raises significant revenues from user fees and indirect taxes. The breadth of revenue sources collected both by the Imperial Government and sub-national levels from various fees, excise taxes, use taxes, and non-protectionist tariffs are a sizable plurality of the tax base (and larger than general taxes); however, general taxes collect more in monetary revenues than fees and indirect taxes do. Outside of the National Retail Sales Tax (a general consumption tax), user fees, excise and use taxes, and custom duties make up the largest plurality of revenues collected, followed by the poll tax and other general taxes.

1.The corporate tax is a 6.5% business consumption tax levied on all businesses. · 2. A rate of 0.25% is levied on stock transactions. The tax on futures contracts to buy or sell a specified commodity of standardized quality at a certain date in the future, at a market determined price is 0.02%. Swaps between two firms and credit default swaps is taxed at 0.02%. · 3. The poll tax is a fixed per-head "hearth tax" that levies a 5% charge per voter on the total household income in a family unit. Households are legally defined as a married couple, plus dependents (including children and/or the couple's parents), or a single person in addition to dependents(s), or any combination thereof. The tax is applied as 5% per head on total household income, where a household of four voters would be levied 20% on the household'a aggregate household annual income. At minimum, a household is defined as a single person living entirely or substantially as a financially independent agent, and is levied at 5%.
