Man Paid His DMV With 300,000 Pennies And It Took Workers Over 12Hours To Count Them

Nick Stafford, who has been fighting with the Department of Motor Vehicles in Virginia, decided to pay his $2,987.14 tax bill in pennies.

It took five wheelbarrows to transport the nearly 300,000 coins to the local DMV. All the pennies broke the coin-counting machine and ultimately had to be counted by hand.

The fight further escalated when Stafford called and was told he wasn’t allowed to call the number and was hung up on. Eventually, Stafford was given the answer to his initial inquiry, but said he wanted government agencies to be more responsive to public inquires. He even demanded to know the direct numbers of other Virginia DMVs, taking the issue to court.

“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,” he said.
