The Witcher 3 DLC Will Punish You For Using Money Exploits
Taxes follow you everywhere, even when you jump into the fictional virtual world of video games.
Before you enter the sewers in Oxenfurt as part of a main quest, a tax man approaches you and asks you a series of questions. You can see the encounter in this YouTube video.
The Deputy Tax Enumerator from the Revenue and Customs department wants to talk to you about some of your earnings. He says you've been red-flagged because you came into a lot of money relatively quickly, which is a hint that you might've used a money exploitation trick. The questions ask about selling copious amounts of rawhide in White Orchard and harvesting clams for the valuable pearls.
See, there were little tricks that would let you do both of these tasks relatively easily, and thereby get a bunch of money fast. But this flies in the face of the following statute:
"Whoever purchases goods at an unseemly low price to take advantage of the seller's ignorance shall be subject to a fine equaling 200 percent of the earnings from any such transaction."
Of course, you can just deny everything and that'll be that. If you do, the tax man will give you a "Taxpayer in Good Standing" diploma, which is just downright funny.
