Does the tax rate set on the corporation affect the taxes collected from citizens?
It appears it does because since I lowered my taxes on corps taxes collected on citizens has been going down now steadily for some time.

Coincidence probably. Salaries are ment to effect citizen taxes, but I think there is a bug that only government salaries determine how much tax is collected by all workers. Also young countries with low populations have a bonus in income tax to make sure they don't loose too much money from early expenses. As the population increases the income tax collected becomes normal which usually means it decreases.

You also get an income tax bonus in the beginning. This bonus gradually wanes, so you may be seeing that.

No, I don't think this is a question of losing the bonus. I'v been playing now for about 2.5 months, I made level two, and have a pop of 22mil. I think I'm past giveaways. But I do have more and more people working for the enterprise companies, so you may be on to something about taxing only state controlled employees.
I don't remember when I dropped the tax rate, but
If I take a look at the total income graph and eyeball an average I would say about 115bil in total monthly income over the past 17 months, at the same time my citizen income taxe income went from 39.5mil 17 months ago to 35.8 this month.
That is a loss of about 10 percent of total tax revenue over the 17 months.
Now this doesn't really concern me I have other revenue coming in. I just wanted to find out if either of these are true:
The tax rate on corporations are corelated to the tax rate on citizens.
The number of people working for the state and it's corporations is corelated to the tax revenue of citizens.
You see I did both at the same time (i.e. tax rate zero, and more enterprise controlled corps), so I have no way of finding out.

Actually I do raise taxes slightly and find out if it stops bleeding revenue.
