Shasta County Man Pays his $14,000 Property Tax Bill in Change
Larry Gasper showed up with his trunk full of cash--and nothing was bigger than a dollar.
Gasper lost his tree business a couple of years ago, in part, because he couldn’t pay his taxes.
Gasper said he tried to pay half of the bill a few weeks ago but the county refused to take it.
Gasper gathered all the money he could and rolled it.
"I had to borrow some money,” said Gasper. “I’ve missed a few payments on my home to pay for my taxes for this piece of property.”My grand-kids' piggy banks, my daughters' piggy banks, my money , my change and a lot of people have offered to help a bit.”
Gasper said the money took a while to count. The representative at the office said that it is protocol that the money has to be given in full or it won’t be accepted.
