You collect taxes by hiring a Tax Collector. Each tax collector has a count-down time until the tax may be collected. After that time has past, you have another count-down timer of the same length to click on the now flashing red icon and actually add that amount to your Coins Total. Failure to respond before the count-down has expired will result in the "Money Lost! Hire a new Tax Collector!" message.
Totti may be used 10x each Day at the most, after which he will work 10x at the Tired Totti rate while complaining he is "sleepy". After that, he goes to sleep and can not be roused until the next Day begins. (Occasionally after Pictor works for 4 hours Totti can be used again for an unknown time, but this seems like a software bug, not deliberate.)

- Note that at the 12,000 and above population the amounts that appear under the tax collectors and the actual amounts collected differ. This is the actual collected amount. Attempting for 50,000 population is not recommended --as of June 2010 some users were reporting being locked out of tax collection and other problems.

You can hire Tax Collectors and collect Taxes by using the Smartphone web pages. It is worth noting Totti will not state, he is tired but only collect the tired amount.
