Larry Gasper, a grandfather from Redding, California, recently paid his tax, but what seemed to be unusual is that he used coins and dollar bills, as shown in the news video below. Instead of the usual issuing of check to the bank, Gasper performed his role as an honest taxpayer quite heavily.

According to ABC57 News on Thursday, January 17, 2013, Gasper paid his $14,000 property tax with dollar bills and tons of coins, which he loaded in a wheelbarrow. He said he used to have a tree business but lost it a couple of years ago, which led to his problem on how to pay his tax debt.

“I had to borrow some money. I’ve missed a few payments on my home to pay for my taxes for this piece of property. My grand-kid’s piggy banks, my daughter’s piggy banks, my money, my change, and a lot of people have offered to help a bit.” Larry Gasper told the report.

Interestingly, Gasper, who drove all the way to a Redding bank with a wheelbarrow of money at the back of his SUV, added that he rolled all the money all by himself.

And as he arrived at the bank, the teller obviously was shock and could not help but to show it to another bank staff, and asked for assistance to count them.
