Bills can be quite high in The Sims 4. As a matter of fact, many players complained about insanely high bills ever since Seasons was launched. Well, if you often use the thermostat, bills will go through the roof.
But sometimes, you may get charged only one Simoleon for your bills. Some would say that’s a good problem to have. But the most confusing part is that the total usually says you need to pay more than $1. Let’s talk about why your bills are only 1 Simoleon.
Why am I getting charged 1$ for my Sims 4 bills?
You’re using mods that change bills
Low bills could be mod related. If you’re using any mods that change bills, it may take a while to catch up even after you remove the mod.
As a quick reminder, there are various mods that you can use to lower your bills or even get rid of them completely. For example, you can install Realistic Bills, No More Bills, and others to alter the bill system.
Your mods are causing the glitch
Disable your mods and check if you’re still getting 1 Simoleon bills. If you have outdated mods, put the new mods in and your bills should go back to normal.
