REDDING, Calif. (KRCR/CNN) - A California man paid $14,000 in property taxes using only coins and dollar bills.

He says he hit some tough times and had to ask around for help.

"I had to borrow some money. I've missed a few payments on my home to pay for my taxes for this piece of property. My grandkids' piggy banks, my daughters' piggy banks, my money, my change and a lot of people have offered to help a bit," said Larry Gasper.

Gasper says he rolled all the money himself and packed the $14,000 in the back of his car to pay off his debt.
