Did you know that churches are exempt from paying property taxes? This person sure did, and he decided to take advantage of it! He would hold a religious ceremony in his house once a year and declared it a house of worship, and according to this storyteller, he never had to pay taxes.
It sounds like a pretty sketchy life hack, but it worked for this person. We’re in no way encouraging this behavior, but talk about beating the system! We wonder what kind of ceremonies he held and how many people attended. There have to be some rules and protocols in place for what’s considered a “house of worship”, right?
