Fianna Fail argue that now is not the right time to bring in a property tax, they're not against the idea but just not for now.
Anybody listening to Liveline yesterday would of heard some harrowing stories regarding this tax.
It is expected to take in about 500 million euro per annum.

My suggestion, we spend 600 million euro a year on foreign aid. For a period of up to five years we scale it back by 80% and at the same time suspend the property tax for upto five years.

When the economy turns around and missed mortgage repayments and other issues with the banks and property have very much improved, we then introduce a property tax and increase our foreign aid.

Quite bluntly, every, yes every cent and euro collected in property tax will be cancelled out by our foreign aid commitments. 500 million euro in and 600 million euro in aid out.

Why not cut back foreign aid and keep the property tax?

Dont get ANGRY with the Taxman ........ get EVEN!

Pay by cheque in 12 monthly installments.

1,000,000 x 12 = 12,000,000 items to be handled manually will collapse the system.

I agree with a property based system of taxation also but I wont consider it for a second until the banks have been dealt with decisively and the ECB has been made take its share of the responsibility for the mess we are in.
Until then Fine Gael has the same chance of getting me to pay it as Fianna Fail has of getting me to vote for them.

I've a better idea...why not cut back on foreign aid and tax to the hilt FF and all former TD's who were part of or supported the govt. in the last two Dail terms prior to 2011, in addition to the head honchos at AIB, BoI and the former Anglo for totally f*cking up our economy.

What money? By it's very nature this tax is attempting to collect money that, in many cases, quite simply does not exist.

Terrible idea. Foreign aid goes to people whose hardship is far greater than ours. Nobody in Ireland has to walk 20 miles to access clean drinking water. Nobody in Ireland will die due to the unavailability of simple over-the-counter medicines for conditions that are not life-threatening in the developed world, but are life-threatening in the Third World. And nobody in Ireland will die of hunger.

I don't recall the ECB f*cking up our public finances the way FF did.

Its going to cost them so much to get it out of me that it will cancel out your payment a multiple of times, remember that when you are paying it.
Why is it going to cost the Revenue so much to collect it from you?

Are you not in employment or in receipt of any social welfare payments?
