Taxes Hold'em Pt. 2[edit]

After tapping on Homer's exclamation mark:
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png Earning money is a lot harder now that Springfield is so big, and everything is so expensive!
Tapped Out Lisa Icon.png It's called inflation. The more money you create out of thin air, the more expensive things will get.

Quest reward: Cash.png100 and XP.png10

Taxes Hold'em Pt. 3[edit]

After tapping on Homer's exclamation mark:

Tapped Out Agent Johnson Icon.png Actually, Mr. Simpson. Not paying taxes on your income is a very serious crime.
Tapped Out Agent Johnson Icon.png I'm Agent Johnson of the IRS, and you're going to tell me who else in town has been evading their taxes.

Task: Make Homer Snitch on Tax Evaders (1h, Simpson House)
Tapped Out Agent Johnson Icon.png So what you're saying is that everyone in Springfield hasn't paid any taxes since the town was destroyed?

Quest reward: Cash.png100 and XP.png10

Taxes Hold'em Pt. 4[edit]

After tapping on Homer's exclamation mark:
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png So, Agent Johnson. What are you going to do now that the IRS is letting everyone in town evade their taxes?
Tapped Out Agent Johnson Icon.png Our branch has to do something, and collecting money is all we know. Isn't there any use for that in this town?

Taxes Hold'em Pt. 6[edit]

After completing House Always Wins Pt. 5:
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png 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.
Tapped Out Agent Johnson Icon.png I'm afraid to ask what you used to collect taxes with.
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png Years of working at the power plant has left me with a pretty useful vestigial tail.
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png And a pretty useless case of irreversible radiation poisoning.
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png So... can you make that circle thing even bigger so I can collect more money, in less time?
Tapped Out Agent Johnson Icon.png Of course! You just need to upgrade to our Deluxe or Mega-Lazy service.
Tapped Out Agent Johnson Icon.png Every time you do we'll make it even easier for you to collect your income.
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png So to do less work collecting money, I need to earn a bunch of money first by working?

Job Manager Gameplay[edit]

Between Jobs Pt. 1[edit]

After completing Weekend Dad Pt. 16 and tapping on Kirk's exclamation mark:
Tapped Out Unemployment Agent Icon.png ID and social security number please.
Tapped Out Kirk Icon.png I've actually got both, now that the criminal who stole my identity gave them back.
Tapped Out Unemployment Agent Icon.png Oh! Mr. Van Houten. You can just skip the line thanks to your frequent visitor status.
Tapped Out Kirk Icon.png That's ok. When you've got nothing but time on your hands, waiting in line is like a vacation with purpose.
Tapped Out Unemployment Agent Icon.png That's the saddest thing I've ever heard and I work at the unemployment office. And moonlight at the suicide hotline.
Tapped Out Kirk Icon.png You do? Tell Gary I said hello! And I'll be speaking with him soon!
Tapped Out Unemployment Agent Icon.png So do you want a job? I've got chicken sexer, roadkill cleaner, virtual gold farmer-
Tapped Out Kirk Icon.png Right now I was kind of just hoping for a hug.
Tapped Out Gil Icon.png If he isn't taking it, I'll take that virtual gold farmer job. Maybe then ol' Gil's virtual wife will stay faithful.
Tapped Out Squeaky Voiced Teen Icon.png I'll take the roadkill cleaning job. After working at Krusty Burger, it'll be nice to see where our meat comes from.
Tapped Out Kirk Icon.png Wow, I didn't realize that I wasn't the only unemployed loser out there. Why is all of Springfield looking for a job?
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png Some people are just too lazy to tap a few buttons. Not me -- I trained a monkey to push buttons for me!
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png 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!

Between Jobs Pt. 2[edit]

After tapping on Kirk's exclamation mark:
Tapped Out Kirk Icon.png 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?
Tapped Out Unemployment Agent Icon.png Oh you actually noticed...
Tapped Out Unemployment Agent Icon.png 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.
Tapped Out Unemployment Agent Icon.png 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 (4h)
