They’re finally here, the long awaited, and forever unreleased, IRS and Job Manager are finally released. Few clicks and the game is easier, or is it? Let’s find out! Follow us right after the jump for the walkthrough!
The questline auto starts once you reach Level 35 and involves Homer and Agent Johnson, the latter of which unfortunatly wasn’t released.
Taxes Hold’em Pt. 1
The best part of rebuilding Springfield is that it makes me proud of my accomplishments.
On second thought, the best part of rebuilding Springfield is all the money I’m collecting.
System Message: Complete this quest chain to unlock the IRS. Use the IRS building to collect income easier!
Task: Make Homer Collect Income by Hardly Working
Location: Simpson House
Task: Collect Income from Buildings [x20]
Taxes Hold’em Pt. 2
Earning money is a lot harder now that Springfield is so big, and everything is so expensive!
It’s called inflation. The more money you create out of thin air, the more expensive things will get.
I don’t really have THAT much money though, see…
Task: Make Homer Count His Money
Location: Simpson House
Taxes Hold’em Pt. 3
Okay, okay. Maybe I have SOME money. Is that such a crime?
Actually, Mr. Simpson. Not paying taxes on your income is a very serious crime.
I’m Agent Johnson of the IRS, and you’re going to tell me who else in town has been evading their taxes.
Look, I get it. You’re playing good cop, bad cop. I’d like to speak to the good cop, please.
That’s cute. I am the good cop.
Task: Make Homer Snitch on Tax Evaders
Location: Simpson House
So what you’re saying is that everyone in Springfield hasn’t paid any taxes since the town was destroyed?
Even for a member of the IRS that’s too much paperwork.
I suppose since nobody can even tell me what state we’re in I have no choice but to let it slide.
So, Agent Johnson. What are you going to do now that the IRS is letting everyone in town evade their taxes?
Our branch has to do something, and collecting money is all we know. Isn’t there any use for that in this town?
System Message: Collect your income faster with the IRS – available in the store now!
Task: Build the IRS
At this point the IRS is active and now you can start tapping away on both characters and building and see the magic of autocollecting.
Taxes Hold’em Pt. 5
Okay, we’ve set up our new PERSONAL tax collection service
We’ve started with the base service, which is free of charge.
Yeah, free, right. I know how things work in this game.
Come on, it’s free! Give it a try. It will allow you to collect your income in a more efficient, a.k.a. lazier way.
System Message: Tap on buildings and characters to collect in a radius around them. Upgrade the IRS to increase the area!
Task: Collect Income Using the IRS [x3]
Want to collect faster and with a wider radius? Upgrade your IRS up to Level 9 now!
You really did make it easier. Now I can collect taxes while sitting on my couch with a beer in one hand, a sandwich in the other, another beer balanced on my belly, and in this cup holder… a second sandwich.
I’m afraid to ask what you used to collect taxes with.
Years of working at the power plant has left me with a pretty useful vestigial tail.
And a pretty useless case of irreversible radiation poisoning.
So… can you make that circle thing even bigger so I can collect more money, in less time?
Of course! You just need to upgrade to our Deluxe or Mega-Lazy service.
Every time you do we’ll make it even easier for you to collect your income.
So to do less work collecting money, I need to earn a bunch of money first by working?
Exactly. Let me give you a little lesson in economics.
System Message: Upgrade the IRS to increase the Tax Collection Radius and save yourself more tapping!
Task: Uprade the IRS to Level 2
After levelling it up to Level 9 the Fancy IRS skin will unlock for the IRS and a quick text by Homer closes up the questline.
The IRS is done now, but another feature was added, the Job Manager, to access it you need to complete Kirk’s questline (Weekend Dad) and reach Level 37.
After completing Weekend Dad Pt. 16
ID and social security number please.
I’ve actually got both, now that the criminal who stole my identity gave them back.
Oh! Mr. Van Houten. You can just skip the line thanks to your frequent visitor status.
That’s ok. When you’ve got nothing but time on your hands, waiting in line is like a vacation with purpose.
That’s the saddest thing I’ve ever heard and I work at the unemployment office. And moonlight at the suicide hotline.
You do? Tell Gary I said hello! And I’ll be speaking with him soon!
So do you want a job? I’ve got chicken sexer, roadkill cleaner, virtual gold farmer-
Right now I was kind of just hoping for a hug.
If he isn’t taking it, I’ll take that virtual gold farmer job. Maybe then ol’ Gil’s virtual wife will stay faithful.
I’ll take the roadkill cleaning job. After working at Krusty Burger, it’ll be nice to see where our meat comes from.
Wow, I didn’t realize that I wasn’t the only unemployed loser out there. Why is all of Springfield looking for a job?
Some people are just too lazy to tap a few buttons. Not me — I trained a monkey to push buttons for me!
He’s my boss now.
System Message: Tap the Office of Unemployment to access the shiny new Job Manager. Use the Send All button to send all the available characters on jobs!
Task: Send All Characters on 60m Jobs
Between Jobs Pt. 2
I’m used to paying for a lot of things: hair plugs, girdles for men, my child’s love. But did I just pay to go on a job?
Oh you actually noticed…
Sending someone on a job means a lot of paperwork, which we pay people to do, but then there’s paperwork for hiring them, and you see how this goes.
So we deduct a portion of your income to pay for our administrative fees. It doesn’t cost you anything…except for money.
Task: Send All Characters on 4h Jobs
After sending your characters all over the town, the quick questline ends.
This is all for now, join us later for more info on this update! Happy tapping!
