I don't know if you could consider this a cheat or not, but if you change your tax rate no later than 2 minutes after every hour, aka 12:02, to maximum rates of 20% across the board and then at 12:03 after taxes are paid change it back to your base values of either 10% or lower, your Sims won't care. This is just a quick way to get cash or save your city from being lost or abandoned.
I use it and have zero consequences from my sims. Just make sure that you change it back at the :03 time. Changing it back at :04 is okay, too. Just don't leave it high. If you do use this cheat a lot, then you can lower the tax rate to 0% across the board until :02 comes around again.
Hope this helps people.

Nope, they haven't fixed this as I still use it to save a city. Trust me it still works.
