I got talked to that a lot back when I was an auxilliary police officer, "I PAY MUH TAXES" was apparently the super secret code words that would allow you to park wherever you wanted to, drive on streets closed for construction, park in a reserved lot having made no reservation, or leave your car in the middle of an active street for an hour or two.
Sadly they were mistaken
My all-purpose comeback? "Glad you do Sir/Ma'm, I'd hate to see you in prison for tax evasion"
-They say nothing good happens at 3am, they're right, I happen at 3am....
-It's a losing battle, you run at your own expense, the repo man is paid to chase you.
