As tax day nears, one business professor recently detailed his journey to try to pay the Internal Revenue Service – in cash.
Professor Jay Zagorsky is writing a book about the use of cash and “wondered how difficult it is for the unbanked to pay taxes,” referring to people without banking accounts.
“The IRS certainly doesn’t make it easy to do so,” the Boston University professor wrote at The Conversation.
Multiple IRS employees tried to discourage him along the way from paying in cash. He had to make a specific appointment with the tax agency to pay his bill in cash.
