When we had a tax sale, the lawyer refused cash because it was over
$10,000. She accepted the bid and gave the bidder time to go to the
bank and get a check.

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!!
