[OPEN] [S] Bills only $1

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.48.90.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get to Work, Get Together, Cats and Dogs, City Living, Parenthood, Free Stuff Pack, Spa Day
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Wait for bills to come in.
What happens when the bug occurs? When the bills roll in, it says I owe only $1, whether it's on a lot worth $10,000 or $350,000.
What do you expect to see? Bills should range depending on how much the house is worth, but it shouldn't be only one simolean.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. This bug occurred after the December 18, 2018 patch.

I expect my bills to range between $500 to over $30,000, depending on the lot, but I wasn't expecting $1 which totally takes the fun and challenge out of raking up the simoleans to pay off the bills. This started happening after yesterday's patch.

I'm having the same problem. I do have a thermostat on the lot. Is that what's causing it? My thermostat is a cc one .

I have a thermostat on my lot and turned it on all week, and got normal bills of around 3k to 4k.

Not sure exactly what's breaking it but this does seem to be a legit bug

I removed my cc thermostat, it was the H&B, and my bills went back to normal! So it's the cc.

Except my non-CC thermostat is creating the same issue. Having them off seems to be more of a common factor.
