Hi All,

 

I was wondering what the best tax rates for simcity 5 are. Something that will have a good income and increase the wealth of my buildings. Any suggestions? Thanks. Have a good one.

SimCity... 5? Never knew they made a sequel to SC4 :P

 

If you're referring to SimCity (2013), I find that people will get upset if your tax rate is 12% or higher. Rich sims like rates around 7% but they can tolerate up to 9% but don't expect any further high wealth growth.

I have experimented with starting a city at 12%.  Had good growth at the start, then everyone got pissed and started to leave. I then had the flexibility to lower taxes to 11 then 10%, still showing a lot of growth.

I use 11/10/10.

§ complains sometimes with 11, but rarely leaves, unless I have a very low mayor rating (<50)

§§ and §§§ are fine at 10, but seems to quickly leave if I try to push it above 10, even if I'm rated >80.

 

EDIT: C seems more tolerant than R to "high taxes". my commercial zones sims take more time to leave than residents if I put high C§/§§/§§§ taxes.

I have kept mine at 9 percent in all of my cities. Tried lowering to 8 and it didn't have enough of an impact on demand to justify the lost income...

    I tax at 9% if the city economy is good. Taxes will go up to 11% if services grow, and up to 12% temporarily if the city is in financial trouble. I wouldn't recommend going past 12 though.
