You can either make a color-by-color adjustment (a trial-and-error, time-consuming endeavor), or profile the paper/printer combination -- which is probably the more sensible way to do it.
If you print on yellow paper, then the appearance
should be yellow-ish , shouldn't it ?
If you profile the printer for a standard like D50
then the appearance would be neutral.
Aha - printing on yellow-ish paper for neutral
appearance is as non-sensical as transforming
christmas candlelight scenes into D50 or D65.
Printing on colored paper should be done by
appearance and trial & error.

Neutral-looking tints *can* conceivably be printed on colored paper -- just not in the highlights.
It depends on how dark the paper's color is, and how much of the paper's cast can be counterbalanced by the printer's inks. It's clearly easier to do with lighter-colored papers than with darker ones.
