REDDING, CA -- 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.

Has to be given in full? Retards. Wouldn't they rather something than nothing?

no, they'd rather not let you pay a dime on it while they collect fees, additional penalties, and the like.

no, its due to laws and regulations. If any amount is accepted, both homeowner and government would enter into a new contract agreement which would need to be written up legally. The person accpeting the money could be terminated for operating outside her role. There is "protocol" to be followed as quoted in the article. Legally, hands are tired on both sides.

added: also if they did accept this persons partial payment, it would open a floodgate of other people trying the same thing. If someone would pay only partial then the courts could get involved etc etc etc. Keep it clean, follow the rules.

I'm not doubting the law. I'm saying it's retarded.
