Let's get the first point sorted first. No landowner these days stamps leather
with a bull's head opr whatever to create his own money to pay tax.
The tax must be paid from money earned through carrying out some commercial
activity on the land, or off it if it is only used as a home residence.
If he can't charge the cost of the tax into some form of production, he will
not have the land long.
So basically, every normal landholder you care to name.
I don't see much point in going further if you are unable to grasp this
