I dont think taxes are bugged but instead the discount is incorrect there.
But this would need an official statement if first purchase also is supposed to actually apply to taxes there.

It’s just strange that when you go up to the house to make the purchase it shows a certain amount for taxes but when you purchase the house it’s an entirely different number. Maybe not a bug but hopefully something that can be resolved by listing the taxes correctly one way or the other.

I noticed this a few days ago when I bought my first house.

First week was set to be half off, so 500g. The next day it said my weekly taxes were 782g.
