It just goes to show that even doctors are idiots too. Maybe everyone should leave off a few funds from the doctors bill. My guess is he'd have that billng handed over to a collection agency faster than WZZM could write an article.
Hey DOC, pay your bills in full and the government won't have to waste the rest of the taxpayers money chasing you...

We once got a bill from Verizon for $.25 - they actually expected us to pay it. We didn't.

I think the ones who are "idiots" are the ones who think the doctor was trying to commit a crime. It was obviously a mistake on his part and he thought it was funny / sad that the city would spend $5 to collect a .51 cent tax.

I believe the doctor is going to pay but wanted to bring to light a possible way the city could maybe save a little money by changing a "policy". He is not asking for the bill to be waived... just use some common sense.

The city of Brighton is far from the only one to do this. It doesn't happen very often, but I have recieved similar bills and have also recieved a check for a tiny amount that I had overpaid on a credit card. Cost of a check, envelope, and postage to refund less than 50 cents!
