And if you ever end up paying one of their "fees" or "taxes" ...

... think: pennies.

When forced to pay $1,700 dollars, a Tennesee man decided to do just that: pay 1700 dollars, as in dollar coins.
Officials got a break though: they were all neatly wrapped up in their original rolls. Having opened up countless of such rolls, it wouldn't have taken me that long to uwrap them all ... 68 rolls at roughly four seconds per role (the trick is to hit them with the long end up against a counter, tearing the paper), I'm confident I could do it in under ten minutes.

Imagine taking a picture of a pet lizard lying on that pile of change :')

The couple is considering using pennies next time.

It reminds me of the seinfeld episode where he paid off some $300.00 bs debt with a big sack of pennies.
