    Default Man pays $5,734 property taxes with $1 bills



    So sad.


    Dan R. Aylward walked into the county treasurer’s office with a large black suitcase.

    It was stuffed with 5,734 dollar bills - the first portion of his property taxes.

    “I will do this every year until my last breath,” Aylward told the Northwest Herald. “(Raising property taxes) is wrong, it’s evil, and it’s got to stop.”

    Aylward, 67, is protesting his increasing property tax bill and plans to do this again when the next installment is due Sept. 13, according to the Northwest Herald.

    The property tax on the 1911 house his great-uncle built was $9,609.36 in 2010. It is now $11,468.36, according to the Northwest Herald.

    His children will not be able to live in the house because they can’t afford to.



    “I am either going to be forced to sell it and move out of the state or stay and lose it because of the taxes,” he told the Northwest Herald.

    God wouldn't it be grand if there ever was a place with no property tax.... closest thing to freedom this side of the dirt
    There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket.

    The essential English leadership secret does not depend on particular intelligence. Rather, it depends on a remarkably stupid thick-headedness. The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.

    Where is that ? Woodstock , Illinois ? I guess about all he could do is sell it and move 100 miles South East and buy something where the property tax will be about 800 a yr. in Northern In.

    Yes, Illinois. It was in the AJC and we have a Woodstock GA - I thought it was here.

    Woodstock, Il


    I mentioned this to Mr Animal and he pointed out the bar pays $37,000.00 a year in property taxes alone.

    There are places with little to none. But they're usually out in the sticks.
