Taxes are the economic flow from the people to the government. Generally, in period, this meant that you paid whomever you owed fealty to, be it your local baron or lord if you were a peasant, or whomever was above you if you were nobility. If you had it, you would pay your taxes with money or you can pay your taxes in barter if you were cash-poor.

In period England, it was the role of the reeve (cf. sheriff) to collect the taxes.
