residents meet new taxes!
3, 2002 - by Bimbo Nobrain Loveless
few weeks ago all Simmerville households received a letter from the Hood
Council, announcing the new net worth tax, running monthly from September
1st. But why complaining?
been a lot of fuss lately, concerning the new Net worth Tax. Steve Grumblin,
member of our Hood Council, asked me to write an article on this subject,
as some residents obviously threw that letter away with the trash. What
a stupid thing to do! Important letters should not be thrown out just like
off to my desk to read the letter once more, but ack - it wasn't there,
I'm sure it must be somewhere! Then I got an idea, why not interview Mr
well. I thought our letter said it all, but here we go.
The new tax, it has resulted in a few complaints, right? Sims saying they
will leave this neighbourhood for good, or what?
that bad, but yes, there has been many protests to this new Net worth Tax.
Residents tend to believe it's much heavier on them than it actually is.
It will only be a couple thousand simoleons per household monthly, or?
Uhh, the letter said 5%?
wrong, but it seems like everybody who did NOT read the letter believe
it's all about a 5% tax. The Net worth Tax is only 1% of the household's
net worth, I'm sure those complaining were surprised when the tax was paid,
and it hardly effected their budget. The average household was charged
agree it's not that much to scream about. And it's for a good course, the
tax will be used for ... roads and cabs... and ... such?
tax is reserved Community development. Like importing new furniture, wallpapers,
cloths and even garden plants. In the newly opened Testville neighbourhood
all these articles are tested, and these families need financial support
to buy the stuff they are to test. The Net worth Tax is far from covering
maybe we should rather stop testing imported articles? SimSit, BB-design
and Art for Art's Sake can deliver what we need!
that would be ridiculous, because they can't produce enough items. And
many imported items are of low quality, or they can't be used around here
at all. It is a Sim's right to have a personal home, don't you think? How
boring if all your neighbours had exactly the same sofa and kitchen counter
I don't even want to think such an awful thought! Thank you for telling
us some about the new Next worse Tax, Mr Steve Grumblin.
