Pennsylvania Man Pays $7,143 Township Tax in One Dollar Bills [VIDEO]

Robert Fernandes wasn’t very happy with his tax bill. To his his distain Fernandes showed up at tax collectors office with $7143 (and change) in dollar bills and videotaped the proceedings. What was he so upset about?

Fernandes, as reported by Forbes, feels that his money is being “stolen”.

Fernandes’ young children (ages 1, 4 and 7) are not enrolled in a brick and mortar school in the school district: Fernandes’ wife is currently homeschooling the children. He said about the tax, “We don’t even use the public system, yet I am being forced to pay all this money into a public school system. I don’t think that’s really either fair or just or even ethical.

According to the article Fernandes recently moved to the township in part because of the lower tax rate than he had been paying so, apparently, he had done some research. Also, the home schooling laws in Pennsylvania do allow for home schoolers to access public school facilities.

Families who homeschool are still considered part of the school district where they live – in some districts, home schooled children are allowed access to the schools for extracurricular programs like art, music and sports.
