Avoid Taxes on Items Sold
You can reduce the taxes for items you sell on the Market Board to 3% or even 0% for more profit!
This reduction is especially important if you sell high-value items. An item sold for 1m gil at the normal 5% tax rate would see you lose 50k gil from the sale.
Visit a Retainer Vocate, found in each major city where retainer services exist.
