Comments? I would probably have the tax line appear on the day the
noble actually taxed, i.e.

14: Noble [tttt] collected n gold in taxes.
30: Collected YYYY gold from owned provinces.

Presumably TAX could only be used once per month.

This is an okay wrinkle, it gives a nice small incremental benefit for
some extra effort. But is it needed/useful/desirable?
