Senatus consultum ultimum de tributis alio modo solutis II
SENATUS CONSULTUM ULTIMUM DE TRIBUTIS ALIO MODO SOLUTIS
Enacted on: a.d. VIII Id. Oct. Q. Arrio P. Annaeo cos. ‡ XXII ANRC et MMDCCLXXII AUC (In the year of the consulship of Q. Arrius and P. Annaeus, 13rd April, 22 ANRC / 2772 AUC / 2019 AD)
As in the previous year, the senate is still compelled to collect taxes not in the form of corporate membership fees but voluntary private donations. The (non-corporate) senate decides the following alternatives to the usual taxpayment so that the republic suffer no harm and the citizens can aid the functioning of our community yet still remain in control over their public treasury:
I. Any citizen, who donates any amount of money which is no lower than 9 USD toward the Nova Roma Website Hosting Expenses, managed by quaestor T. Popillia Laenas, will be classified as non-corporate "assiduus" (taxpayer) for the current year Q. Arrio (II) T. Domitio (III) cos. (2020).
II. These taxes shall not be advertised as the usual "taxes" (membership fees) in Nova Roma in order not to cause a misleading confusion between these voluntary donations and the membership fee within Nova Roma, Inc. This call for donations doesn't qualify and is not intended to be perceived as the membership fee within Nova Roma, Inc. This donation is outside of the corporate frames of Nova Roma, Inc, and it is intended as a collection of private donations toward financing the costs of the website hosting fees of Nova Roma, Inc.. Members of Nova Roma don't gain any offices, titles or any status within Nova Roma, Inc., by contributing these donations, but they will be recognized only within the non-corporate community of Nova Roma, which currently plays the role of the Nova Roman res publica.
III. The deadline for submitting the aforementioned donations will be the Ides of November (13 November).
IV. Citizens who don't contribute the donations as described above will be classified as capite censi and will lose their state positions, offices and titles, which are connected to a required assiduus status, including senatorial or equestrian status, after pridie Kal. Dec. (30 November). Only citizens who have already paid this year’s taxpayment donations are allowed to run for office at this year’s elections.
V. A late donation made after Id. Nov. (13 November) should be no lower than 18 USD, the double of the basic donation. If a citizen obtains his citizenship after the Ides of November (13 Nov.), he shall donate the normal amount until the end of the year, without the penalty.
