To conclude, I doubt that 徵 as related to tax-collection was originated independently, I guess it was derived from "Go-on-a-journey".

Hmm, I checked zdict too. (1) "military service" to (2) "tax collection", are obviously two different thing, I used to wonder, that starting from what time, was Zheng first used for tax collection. But it seems your point is, Zheng used as tax collection started INDEPENDENTLY as 徵. Then by quoting from Shiji "黃帝乃徵師諸侯", I was trying to say, that in this sentence, 徵 still closely related to a military event. Secondly, are you sure, in the old time, both 徵 and 征 were being used simultaneously?

Are you sure about that? Then what about this "於是黃帝乃徵師諸侯,與蚩尤戰於涿鹿之野。"
