In Richford we have always accepted cash, sometimes in large sum. We did
have one individual that came in to pay her taxes in coin, over $1,000. I
think she was trying to be smart. It was unrolled. We made her stand at
the counter and wait while we slowly counted all the change. It took about
45 minutes. She has never done that again.

I don't believe you can refuse cash payments either. In years past, I have
received as much as $14,000 in cash from a taxpayer. The down side is that
the bank may require you to complete one of the >$10,000 cash deposit forms
for their records.
I recall a story for our town that a taxpayer came and paid part of the
taxes in coin. That wasn't very cool because it wasn't rolled ! I would
think you could reject un-rolled coin.
The only item we reject is foreign currency. We require the payment to be
made in US Currency.

What are treasurer's/tax collector's policies on accepting cash for payment
of taxes? Do any towns have any restrictions/policies on accepting cash for
these large sums of money? Thanks!!
