Vicus Nonad says 'My family is personally indebted to you for your assistance today Torrin. Please speak to my brother. I'm sure he will have some small reward for your dutiful service.'
Vicus Nonad says '<cough> Great! Thank you so much. Here is a small gratuity for a job well done. Thank you again. <cough> Antonius Bayle and the People of Qeynos appreciate all you have done.'

You gain experience!!

Rewards range from a few silver pieces to minor items (Copper Amulet; Brass Ring; Turquoise).

NOTES: The faction hits for collecting the tax payments are minor. The final faction hit makes up for them. You can say "tax collection" to the NPCs without having spoken with Vicus first. You can bypass Mira Sayer by just speaking with Flynn.
