What to do with the tax
Hello, i don't know what to do with the tax, but my money is always running low and that i'm game over i don't know what to do?
Answer from: Simmy!
Early in a scenario, i find it handy to raise taxes -- usually to about 20%, to start building up your bankroll. then, spend your cash on items that will increase the population (and thereby broaden your tax base). schools, parks, playing fields -- these rapidly increase the population of high density housing. as the population increases, you can taper off the tax rate to keep the revenue just above your spending. i like to get to about 100k in the bank before levelling off the taxes.
to change the tax rate, open the systems bar by pressing "back", select "tax information", then use the # key to increase and * key to decrease the tax rate. watch your revenue and spending info, which is displayed in the tax information dialogue.
you can complete all scenarios without going into debt if you manage your revenue and spending. some scenarios fail if you end a month with a negative balance, so don't spend money you don't have!
