Has it been dificult for you to rake in the Simoleans? Here is the tutorial for you!
This is aimed at making money without any cheats!
One of the main things to remember is that you can always turn down funding for an individual social building. Meaning lower school bus/ambulance funding, so that it only covers the areas you want covered. Lower funding just above the number of patients/students.

The same can be applied to power plants. Water buildings, they can be lowered to an average amount. This sometimes affects output, so be very careful!

Another thing that you can do is lower transportion funding about 20% down without getting any potholes. The same for mass transit. You can also lower airport funding to a level where it is averaged out as well, just like water buildings.

Gaining money is easy by raising taxes for all zone types from between 9.0% and 10.0%. However be careful not to go any higher, unless you are trying to drive someone out of town.

Garbage is a killer of funding. That is why you must stop zoning landfills once the total monthly cost hits 5-6000 dollars. Landfills are extrememly expensive, and they can be replaced with trash incinerators that can also be lowered down to $0, meaning no power output, and it still destroys trash in the tons. Don't bother with the expensive yet extremely insufficient recycling plants.

Issuing the 'Legalize gambling" ordinance helps too, but beware, as this does raise crime effects slightly. You may be using that extra hundred bucks for police stations. However once the reward is unlocked (casino), place it, and it gives you an extra $350 dollars a month. Beware though, as this also affects crime rates.

Nice tutorial, although who would use these? Most people use the money tree or the moolah cheat...

If I may add something to this, I find that when you build a small landfill and (if you have neighbor cities) take thier trash for cash, also to make sure your landfill doesn't get filled up build some waste to energy plants and those will make sure the landfill doesn't get to full. Also somehow they also seem to make a lot of money for me because I build a couple extra and that allows me not to have to build those expensive power plants as much.
