Man pays USA sales tax with 300000 pennies


It's just so damn fun!

Stafford's disagreement came down to sales tax on two new cars, including his son's new Corvette, reports the Herald Courier.

He tells the Bristol Herald Courier he tried to call the Lebanon DMV in September, and was routed to a call center in Richmond.

After that, he wanted the direct numbers to nine other local DMV offices.

The 300,000 pennies weighed almost 1,600 pounds and took 11 people to complete the counting process.

Stafford was paying a $2,987.14 in sales tax for purchasing two new SUVs with cash. One lawsuit was against the Lebanon DMV itself, and two were against specific employees. That's when Stafford went to court.

The timing is challenging since recruiting heats up again this weekend in a three-week sprint to Signing Day. The Golden Bears also ranked No. 10 in total offense (513.2 ypg) and No. 22 in scoring offense (37.1 ppg).

'It shouldn't matter if you pay $300 per year in income taxes or pay $300,000 per year in income taxes like myself, because the backbone of a free democracy / republic begins with government transparency, period'.

"If they were going to inconvenience me then I was going to inconvenience them", says Nick Stafford of employees at his local DMV, which received 298,745 unrolled pennies weighing 1,548 pounds on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, the suits were dismissed at the request of the state "when a representative of the state's attorney general handed Stafford a list of the requested phone numbers in the courtroom".

The penny protest was completely legal, as the U.S. Department of the Treasury states, "Coins and currency are legal tender for all debts, public charges, taxes and dues."

He then hired 11 people at $10 an hour to help him break open the rolled coins. It took them four hours to count it all.

According to Stafford's account, the "DMV started counting the pennies using automated coin counting machines but the machines were jamming so they [had to start] counting the pennies by hand". He also purchased five wheelbarrows for $400, and the three lawsuits cost him a total of $165.

"The DMV employees are being very respectful and accommodating considering the situation", he wrote on his website.
