So our old Q&A post was about 3 years old and full of thousands of comments (nearly 10,000..) so I decided it was time to start a new Q&A thread. Comments on the old thread are now disabled BUT they’re still there are viewable for anyone looking to see something they previously asked.

Do all of the buildings earn money?
No. While almost all of the buildings earn money there are a handful of buildings that do not earn money but have other tasks. Cletus’s Farm does not earn money as the other buildings do instead it earns money through growing crops, Channel 6 earns money through news broadcasts and Open Air Stage earns money through characters performing. While Springfield Downs earns money through betting on the Dog Races.
Town Hall, Moe’s Tavern, Springfield Elementary & the Police Station do not earn money. However, your neighbors can vandalize those buildings with spray paint while visiting and you earn money from cleaning up the spray paint.
Finally, Springfield Retirement Castle is the one building that does not earn money, has no tasks to earn money, and cannot be vandalized. However, it’s a building you must purchase in order to get Grandpa Simpson.
Of course there are more, that I’m sure I don’t have on this list..but the bottom-line is, no. Not all of the buildings in Springfield earn money.
