Infinite Water Trick
Placing a water pump (using filtration pumps) directly next to a sewage treatment plant allows for infinite water. The sewage treatment plant adds back in to the ground water table at that spot. The filtration pumps ensure your water won't get polluted from the ground pollution that will occur. Using this trick, you can pick 1 of the 4 clustered cities in your tradeable region to use this trick over and over. This will provide a massie amount of water that can be purchased. You can then buy from that massive source while building the other 3 cities. This will save needing to place a water source and sewage treatment plant. This can be done for any utility/service.

Tax Collection Glitch (version 1.0)
In version 1.0 of the game, you can collect taxes from your citizens yet keep them happy! Set your taxes to 0% for most of the year, but in December hike them up to 20%. Once January rolls around and you collect your taxes, set them back down to 0%. You will gain funding from the citizens, yet have no complaints from them either!
Version 1.1 fixes this. Tax is collected at the average rate set over the past year.
