Cary Malchow of Muncie was upset by his property tax bill, but he paid it.
In change and one-dollar bills.
All 12-thousand, 656-dollars-and-seven-cents of it.
Malchow lugged the cash-filled bags to the Delaware County treasurer's office Monday and plunked them onto the counter. His unorthodox payment stalled the line he had been waiting in as cashiers labored to count it out by hand.
It took all three of the office's cashiers 75 minutes to count out the cash.
Malchow says he did it so people could see what $12,000 is.
The bill was for taxes on Malchow's Muncie home, his business and his rental properties.
Malchow has staged other recent protests to draw attention to Indiana's property tax increases.
