Read it properly...
to pay for public services
And yet 90% of replies completely ignore these few words and automatically assume that the use of cash throughout has been banned.
No wonder so much BS makes it to ten pages of rubbish here, people don't bother to actually read.

Well, it's like this. The government knows that cash isn't worth the paper it's printed on but your bank account is the answer to their money woes.
"This note is legal tender for all debts public and private" except when it comes to paying the government.

Uniform Commercial Code says no no.. a refused presentment may be retracted without dishonor. Pretty much by them not accepting cash = you don't have to pay the bill

if you would read the DHS provision they can and will, come may there are 5 five city's county's that will no longer accept cash as payment under the act/ provision. why do you think the Ca town is doing this the DHS has forced them too and they do not want to admit too it. Macomb county in MI is an other one no date is set.
