It is one of the regulations of the Property Tax is that a person could lose their Tax Clearance cert if they refuse to pay the property tax. To receive a salary as a TD you must have a Tax Clearance cert. So will the ULA force the issue all the way to losing their salary as a TD and even jeopardizing their seats ??

The money will just be deducted from their salaries and they can call a press conference and proclaim the injustice of it all because they never paid it voluntarily.

Good point. They'll still all have plenty left over from their €92,000 each, anyway.

That's their dilemma of course. I wouldn't condemn them if they pay as a last resort in order to continue as elected reps. After all they would be no use, or at least their effectiveness as campaigners would be diminished if they were to lose the media profile that their status as TD's affords them.
Meanwhile, those of us who can obstruct this disgraceful legislation can push as far as we dare, to defeat it and those well dressed thugs who impose it on us.

It's hard for people who are devoid of principle save self-interest to understand that there are those who believe in things and are prepared to pursue them.

It's even harder to understand how self-proclaimed socialists can oppose a property tax.

Would failure to get a Tax Clearance Cert bar them from standing in the subsequent by-election, though?

I knew that would be asked and it's a valid question. SF haven’t urged everyone to boycott the household charges as many people who are already in debt not to pay as it would be totally wrong to risk them to incur even more costs with fines and possible legal expenses. From what I know and anyone correct if they know better, SF will pay up rather than presue this to inevitable defeat against a govt that has the largest majority ever and shows no sign of changing.

That's being cut under the Bill that passed through the Dáil last night, but they should still manage to cover it.

If you try to apply some thought to the matter, it’s not really that difficult.

First off: this is not a property tax, it is a house tax.

Second: it takes no account of whether or not the house is actually an asset or if it is in fact a massive liability, as a result of the largest property crash known to man.

Third: it takes very little account of the ability of people to pay.

Fourth: where people are able to avail of a deferral, they are charged interest for the privilege.

Fifth: the Taoiseach, and head of the government which is imposing this tax, is on the record as having been against such a tax.

Sixth: If someone has a property on massive grounds, the bulk of those massive grounds are excluded from the tax calculation.

" [h=4]Obligations in relation to tax compliance.[/h]All Members of the Dáil and Seanad have obligations under the Ethics Acts in relation to tax compliance. Members must furnish a Tax Clearance Certificate or Application Statement to the Standards Commission not more than nine months following election to the Dáil or election or nomination to the Seanad. The Tax Clearance Certificate or Application Statement must have issued not more than nine months before or nine months after the date of election or nomination.
Members must also make a Statutory Declaration to the effect that they have complied with their tax obligations and that nothing prevents the issuing to them of a Tax Clearance Certificate. The Statutory Declaration must be made not more than one month before or one month after the date of election or nomination and must be furnished to the Standards Commission not more than nine months after the date of election or nomination."

Nope, to recieve a TD's salary you need a Tax Clearence cert - and I got that from a sitting SF TD only 2 weeks ago. And your tax affairs have to be in order at the date of issue of the Certificate.

It'd be a shame to see elected reps of any colour turfed out over a household tax compliance issue.

Bertie Ahern never had a tax cert the whole time he was Taioseach!

Good question. I'd imagine they would still not be eligible to take the seat due to not having tax clearence, and so it would be used by rivals to the public that voting for someone who cannot take up their seat will be a waste of time.
