Enter 2 (days) & Click Okay With the 13 days “grace period” plus my 500gp (2 days) payment, my Row House is paid up for 15 days. I still have 200gp Tax Credit available You can add more Tax Credits when you have more gold & pay as far ahead as you like. WARNING: YOUR HOUSE HAS ONLY 12 DAYS OF TAXES PAID REMAINING! If your Taxes get down to 12 days remaining, you will get an “real-life” email (NOT an in-game Mail) from the “Housing Authority of New Britannia” in your Inbox, advising you that you need to pay your House Tax. If you do not pay your house tax in time, your Row Lot Deed & everything you placed inside the Row House, will be sent to your Bank. The Tax Credit, remains “attached to the Deed” & can be used when you next claim a Row House. You will not lose anything! MOVING TO A NEW TOWN (NO COST INVOLVED) If you decide you would like to move to another Town, you can unclaim your Row Lot. Your Row Lot Deed will go into your inventory & everything you placed inside the Row House, will be sent to your Bank. The Tax Credit, remains “attached to the Deed” & can be used when you next claim a Row House. Click unclaim. Your Row Lot Deed will be in your inventory & the house contents will be in your bank. When you find a new claimable Row Lot that you want, make sure you have the Row Lot Deed in your inventory & repeat the steps above to claim your new home.
