REDDING, Calif. (CNN/KRCR) - A California man paid $14,000 in property taxes using only coins and dollar bills.
He says he hit some tough times and had to ask around for help.
"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 grandkids' piggy banks, my daughters' piggy banks, my money, my change and a lot of people have offered to help a bit," said Larry Gasper.
Gasper says he rolled all the money himself and packed the money in the back of his car to pay off his debt.
If the fee was enacted as planned in the New Starts application, the expected $555 million in revenue would almost double the amount of taxes and fees motorists currently pay to the state through gas taxes
