波爾多 - 當地市郊村落一名男子,不滿當局加稅幅度高達429歐羅,憤而以全部1、2、5歐仙硬幣繳交所有稅款。

Bordeaux – Patrick Fenelon, a native of the French village Sourzac has sweet revenge towards the French tax authorities. A tax increase of 429 euros led him to his great anger, he just paid the taxes in coins of 1, 2 and 5 cents!

最終他在上週四帶著50公斤的硬幣到達當地的公共財政辦公室,還需人協助搬運硬幣。雖然很明顯惹起官員不悅,但官員無奈之下也只好收下。

The man offered some 50 kilos of coins to the local public finance office. Obviously nobody would be pleased with such amount of coins, but the stuff could not do nothing but receive it.

但這位男士要留在稅局直至點算完成。然而直至週四下午,點算都未完成,預計這位男士要滯留稅局到週一下午才能離開。

Delighted by its small effect, however, was Patrick Fenelon forced to spend his afternoon in the office. And this long count is not finished at the time of closing, the taxpayer is expected stay there until Monday afternoon when the auditis complete.
