2009 taxes

“It’s a shame you didn’t squeeze out that bundle of joy in time for your taxes,” Mayor Walter Steele joked.

“Well I’m not due until spring,” Rebecca replied curtly, “besides we are more than happy to wait, and claim the little one on next years taxes.” She grabbed Quinten’s hand and held it in hers.

“Indeed.” Walter looked up briefly, then back to the computer screen. “You owe $1,300 this year. Take a bush.” He gestured to the bush that had appeared out of nowhere. “Good luck to your growing family.”

Taxes done. Pretty quick business there. Several actually got tax returns! Zeke and Cara were the two that come to mind immediately who actually left the Mayors office with cash in their bank account.

My wealthiest sims

  • Myra & Randy London – $319,150 (no cheats, she’s owned a lot of great businesses and sold for profit)
  • John & Regina Russo – $158,263 (pays off working at the hospital, having hospital career, and a top military man)
  • Merrill & Norma Millett – $111,082 (family business, plus four adults in the household, no need for nanny)

Ironically, household #1 and #2 both only have one child! Imagine that is a coincidence?

I changed my taxes this round to give retirees a break, instead of the 10/15% (depending what city they live in), retired households are only taxed 7% that way they don’t go dirt poor before they kick the can.

Kenzie with the adoption ended up owing 9,400 for her income, property, and adoption taxes, after she got her credits of child, marriage, and adoption.

  1. I like the idea of doing a little rundown of your taxes – it’s interesting to see who’s the richest!

    You know I haven’t been doing taxes lately, because I’ve been using the Bigger Bills hack and that takes a good chunk out anyway. I think I might go back to doing it manually though – Bigger Bills makes it near impossible to play college Sims on rental lots.

    1. That’s good to know on the “bigger bills” hack. I’ve contemplated downloading it, but think I’ll stick with manual taxes if that’s the case. I like pooling it all in the mayors funds, and then using that to build the college, and other random things that pop up. A very half-hearted attempt at running the city on taxes.

      In a few years, Cole and Lucy London will be quite wealthy when his parents pass on. Not sure what to do with all that money! At least Cole is having two kids to split it up a bit.

      You should totally post who is the richest in your hood. I think it’s interesting to see!

  2. I’m trying to play catch up at the moment, but I love what I have read so far……I hope you don’t mind if I add you to my blog list……another great blog to read!!!

  3. I really liked getting a peek at your taxes. πŸ™‚ I’m about to do taxes this round in Pine Hollow for the first time ever, so I’ll probably post a list of which are the wealthiest households (I think I have a pretty good idea of which are the wealthiest, but it’ll be fun to see if reality actually matches up with what I’m thinking). πŸ˜‰

    1. I hope you post the wealthiest families! While we get an idea of who has wealth, it’s always fun to see actual numbers.

  4. OK Maisie, you’ve convinced me! I’m going to do this in my summary this round. You won’t see anyone paying their taxes (because I do that in a totally boring, tedious way) but I’ll post my richest and poorest Sims. I’ve got the list ready to go.
