DADE CITY, FL –  An outspoken critic of Pasco County government paid her $11,075.44 tax bill in dollar bills, plus 44 pennies.

The Tampa Tribune reports Julann Roe brought the stash of cash to the county office complex on Monday. Pasco County Tax Collector Mike Fasano says it took several employees more than an hour to count and verify it.

Roe's 41-acre estate in Dade City is valued at $711,447. It includes a 4,014-square-foot home with a covered pool, Jacuzzi and outdoor fireplace. There is also a detached garage and horse stables.

This just annoys me, it is not the person behind the desks fault and the ones that need to now do the extra work.

They should have made her count it under supervision. lol

So why was she angry? Because she owned a huge estate and refused to pay her employees a raise mandated by the state? Did I read that right? What a terribly written article.

 

If I DID interpret the article correctly, what a bitch. 1%'er problems and all that.

It's legal tender, and she knows they have to accept it.  All she's accomplished is wasting everybody's time.  This is where I wished there was a lineup behind her and she got more than a few people upset at her.  If she pays that much in taxes, she can't be hurting.

 

Also, it's not like her taxes are gonna go down as a result of this.  What I wanna know is, is she gonna do that next year too?

No, I think she doesn't want to pay the county employees more. She doesn't want to pay for their pay increase (their first pay raise in 5 years).

Ironically, she ended up increasing the amount of money the county needs to pay in wages by wasting their time.

Who cares?  They're probably just happy they got paid.  Minor inconvenience to them, at most.

Uhm... all 50 states have property taxes.  Certain counties in certain states rape the land owners and all high-population areas get hit the hardest.

You like having infrastructure, roads, police, fire, medical response? Then you get to pay taxes.

And BTW $750K for a house in Florida is considered a VERY wealthy piece of property. Even the high-end gated communities in Central Florida the houses only run $300k to $500k right now.

If this person wants to live in luxury then she is going to pay her fair share.

I will find the house in a minute so we can all look at it, thanks to Public Record/Sunshine laws.

Edit 1: It's on 41 acres. Here is the property data - http://appraiser.pas...260000039000000

It's called Government in the Sunshine or Sunshine Law. Unless records are statutorily exempt, like on-going investigations, sex crimes, social security numbers, etc. Then it is public record, most states have adopted this or have similar laws in place.

Is just the fenced in portion the 41 acres or is it the whole swath of land to the street that is the entire 41 acre?

Taxation is so 1770s :p

I agree property taxes are pointless. The US govt towns gets taxes on so many other things, that they could be fine with it!
