I LOVE what this man did! Man Pays Property Taxes, $7143, In $1 Bills

Man Pays Property Taxes, $7143, In $1 Bills

An Easton, Pa. man, frustrated over property taxes, visited the local tax office and paid in dollar bills – all $7,143 of it.

One bill at a time.

Local news reports identify the man as Robert Fernandes of Forks Township.

The scene, posted on YouTube, has generated more than 15,600 views — in less than a week.

In the video, Fernandes carries a duffel bag filled with bundled bills, which he proceeds to stack on a counter. He brings doughnuts, offered to “anyone who is inconvenienced here today.”

The tax collector tells Fernandes his protest should probably be directed elsewhere, toward the school board, maybe, which is in charge of setting property tax rates.

“I’m not doing this to make anybody’s life more difficult,” Fernandes tells the collector. “Unfortunately, I wish the same could be said, you know, for me and many others whose lives are more difficult for having to pay property taxes.”

He must have one very nice home if his property tax is over $7000 or Pennsylvania has some very high property tax rates.

Tom, living back East, it doesn't take much of a home to rack up school taxes like that...that's just school taxes. I'm originally from NY state and still have family there. I don't know how they survive because of their property taxes.

My stepson lives in the Dallas area and was complaining about how much his property taxes were. He has a nice house and I asked him how much he pays in property taxes. When he told me what they were, I told him to more than triple it and that is what my sister in NY would be paying for your house where she lives. After that, he wasn't so upset with his tax bill.
