Having complied with 71,684 pages of tax code, determining for the government, at my expense, my income tax due, I ask only my legal right to pay in U.S. currency. Legal tender is a social and legal contract between the government and the governed.

Please use your influence to have the Augusta office of the Internal Revenue Service prepared to accept cash on April 19 this year. Compliance with the law is a two-way street.
