Man Pays Property Taxes With Coins and Small Bills

An awesome FU to the parasites


A California man who failed to pay his property taxes for over five years has finally come up with the money — but he made local tax office workers count nearly $15,000 worth of change and dollar bills.

Larry Gasper of Redding, Calif. brought in a wheelbarrow and two buckets worth of coins and cash to the Shasta County Tax Collector's Office on Wednesday afternoon. Gasper rolled and collected the coins and bills until he had enough to clear his debt.

"It took four of my staff a little over two hours just to count all the cash," Mary Axelson, chief deputy collector at the Shasta County Tax Collector's Office, told "And then it took probably another hour to get it bagged up to go to the bank."
