Calculating PI Tax

So I am trying to setup a PI spreadsheet for myself to calculate profits. I am working on getting taxes but something seems to be off. For example importing 3000 P0 materials with 3% tax the formula should be (4*.03) * 3000 * .5 correct? In my spreadsheet it comes to 180. Now if I got to a planet and test importing 3000 P0's it comes up with a cost of 225. Anyone know where I might be going wrong?

I see it as 4 at Eve-Uni as well, but I do seem to recall they updated the prices somewhat recently. I did find this in the Rubicon 1.0 patch notes.

  • The tax base value for Planetary commodities are being reduced by between 11% and 20%, based on tier.

  • I was pretty sure they increased the price but looks like they lowered it instead.
