Hey everyone! Here is a quick post on SimCity BuildIt – Taxes & Population.
>As a refresher, taxes accumulate daily based on how many Sims are living in your city. You collect these taxes by clicking on the gold coin that floats above your City Hall building.
Here is the tax screen (don’t worry, it will display ‘taxes’ in your primary language :D). It is very important to keep your Sims happy (above 90%) to gain the 20% tax rate, otherwise you will receive LESS tax revenue.

Tax versus Population
EDIT: Updated to v.2 with your data points! Thanks for contributing!
|Standard Error||11464.54959||Standard Error||245.9158662|
|Standard Deviation||241028.3524||Standard Deviation||5170.085015|
|Sample Variance||58094666646||Sample Variance||26729779.06|
Taxes and population is not a linear equation. It is logarithmic based on your population. sgitkene has created these intervals that provide the equation of best fit
|1||0 – 5,000||1199+0.336*pop|
|2||5,000 – 50,000||2133+0.1493*pop|
|3||50,000 – 100,000||7148+0.04864*pop|
|4||100,000 – 500,000||10200+0.018*pop|
Visually, you can immediately see a sharp rise in taxes between intervals 1,2 and 3. In interval 4 between 100,000 to 500,000, tax gains level out even more. The last interval between 500,000 – 1,800,000 (for now) sees another slowdown in tax gains. We will see if the Tokyo Town update effects any of the tax rates.
The highest recorded tax – 25,519 with a population of 1,816,530
Interestingly enough, there looks to be several trends forming below our main line of best fit.These could be evidence of some players seeing a drop in taxes.

Now that Tokyo Town is out, I’ve separated the old data entered previously with any new tax information we receive. If any under the hood tax changes were applied, they will not get mixed in with the old data.
