Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 188.8.131.520

Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Active Sims on a vacation lot when bills come due.
What happens when the bug occurs? An unusually high household bill arrives - sometimes more than one a week.
What do you expect to see? I expect the household bills to come once a week and to reflect a consistent amount based on the value of the Sims' home lot.
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? Neutral/Not Sure
Sent a recently married couple to Selvadorada and they got their normal 5K bill at home right before leaving, but on a Friday (bills had always arrived on Mondays previously). Then, an additional 35K bill on a Monday while they were on vacation. I had to use a cheat code - in fact - to cover the expense!
I understand that some others have had this happen to their Sims while on public lots at billing time as well, although this has not happened to me.
