Office of the TREASURY - On Imperial Taxation
In most recent times, the Office of the Treasury has seen fit to refurbish the Helenic Taxation office, located beneath the city’s own bank. With renovations now complete, taxation may resume as per normal. Residents are expected to pay taxes within a timely manner, through purchasing state-mandated slips. Should a resident be unable to pay their taxes, be of any legitimate reason, they are asked to inform the Office of the Treasury so that necessary arrangements may be made.
The housing and estate taxation shall be paid in the equivalent amounts outlined as follows:
CLASS A : 50 Minae Annually
CLASS B : 150 Minae Annually
CLASS C : 200 Minae Annually
CLASS D : 250 Minae Annually
CLASS E: 400 Minae Annually
Isolated Stalls: 150 Minae Annually
The Taxation framework is within a constant state of review by the Imperial Senate, and subject to change at any time.
Office of the TREASURY - Bi-Annual Earnings & Expenditure
The Treasury earnings remain at a high, increasing by very nearly thirty percent from 1749-1750. Albeit a slight decrease from earlier audits, the flow of income remains stable in the coming budget. Expenses have decreased by a variable of twenty five percent, attributed to a growing economy within the Empire’s own city, creating a lesser need for foreign trade, and the costs associated with it.
Overall, the Treasury’s coffers sit comfortably, with a ten percent higher total than last audited, upon the seventh month of 1749.
IMPERIAL BUDGET: 1750 AND ONWARDS
With the continuation of the Morsgradian War, significant funds shall once again be contributed toward the Imperial State Army, and their efforts to safeguard the citizens of Helena. The Treasury itself, the Office of Foreign affairs, the Office of Judicial Affairs, and the Department of the Interior shall also receive state funding.
That being said, the 1750 Budget shall be as follows, subject to review after two years.
DEPARTMENT OF WAR: 60%
DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY: 17.5%
DEPARTMENT OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS: 10%
DEPARTMENT OF JUDICIAL AFFAIRS: 7.5%
DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR: 5%
Office of the TREASURY - Vassal Taxation
Ongoing discussions continue into the prospect of Vassal Taxation, as recently put forth upon the 1750 Senatorial debate. It is to be expected that this topic shall be brought upon the Senate floor, following elections, with decisions made as to the taxation required upon vassals.
Those wishing to voice questions or concerns are encouraged to contact their local senator.
Office of the TREASURY - Stewardry
As dictated by the Helenic Steward Mandate of 1749, ALL current stewards are required to reapply under the Office of the Treasury, to be determined by a panel of the Secretary, The City Mayor, and the City Clerk. We encourage new applicants whomst have a desire to serve the Empire dutifully.
Employed Stewards are subjects to the benefits of a Fifty Percent discount on all personal store and housing prices, as well as Five Percent of all house sales, as a personal salary.
Given the recent disasters as seen by the Fire of the Helena Slums, temporary relocation will be provided to those affected. If deemed to be you, please contact a Steward.
The Stewardry Roster is as follows:
Lord Mayor, Alren DeNurem [Markosi]
City Clerk, Alexander Pruvia [SerFinnick]
Steward General, Tylos [James2k]
Steward, Andree Keller [TonyStankk]
Steward, Gildi McScribley [LostPoet]

Office of the TREASURY - Private Donorship
As a fundamental catalyst to the formation and continuation of the Imperial Treasury, private donations are able to be made toward the Treasury, with the option to donate toward a specific endeavour, department, or proposal. Should one wish to place a donation, they may reach out to the Secretary directly. Anonymous donations are also accepted.
