Bank of Ireland's James Street Branch are operating an account that facilitates donations to the
Campaign Against Household & Water Taxes


The organisation campaigns encouraging people to break the law and not to pay taxes. Their action would be legitimate if they simply sought to repeal the laws on household taxes.


Why does the Minister not seize the bank account? It is amazing that a Bank kept afloat by the taxpayer and the State should be a party to an effort to prevent the collection of lawful taxes.




Offences Against the State Act, 1939


"Donate to support the Campaign


The Campaign Against Household & Water Taxes is a not for profit, community-based campaign which relies on ordinary people like you for funding. The production of posters, leaflets and the running of our campaign hotline, and the building of our legal advice fund for non-payers, all cost money, and we get no bail out or brown envelopes. So please consider giving us a donation via our bank account (please put “Individual Donation” as the narrative on the lodgement):

Bank: Bank of Ireland, Account name: Campaign Against Household and Water Taxes, Account number: 93336469, Branch Sort Code: 90-08-77 , that is 85 James’s St, Dublin 8"

Because that would be the actions of a totalitarian state. The government at least has to create the illusion that we are living in a democracy
Over 70% of the people have paid. The Government is democratically elected. 70% of the households have endorsed the tax.

Why is a bank assisting criminals to promote the breaking of our law?

Do you want to live in a country where it's illegal for people to fund raise and campaign against laws they don't agree with? Stupid doesn't even begin to describe it. Clown.

+1

I think the country needs a sustainable property tax, but I would be 100% opposed to taking this money from them or preventing them from being able to effectively fundraise.

It is legal to raise funds to repal a law.

It is not legal to encourage others not to comply with the law. That makes he organisation illegal.

The figures tend to suggest that there's a 70% collection rate which is not the same as saying that 70% of liable properties have paid the charge. In fact, the Chief Executive of the LGMA himself admitted that they haven't got a clue about the number of properties who are actually liable for the charge. The government seems to think that there are 1.6m properties who are liable for the charge, but that figure is based on 2006 Census figures which are out of date. According to the last Census, there were 1,994,845 properties in May 2011 of which 334,74 are vacant dwellings. Figures from moneyguideIreland.com seems to suggest that there could be 1.82m properties who are liable for the charge, with latest figures for November telling us that 1.112.521 have registered for the charge, with 22,224 having waivers. That suggests that just over 61% of liable properties have been registered for the household charge. The DOE expected to raise €160m from the charge, with latest government figures suggesting that they have raised €115m so far, which is a 70% collection rate.

By far the best way to challenge a law that demands positive action is to boycott that action. If you feel there is a law being broken by pointing this out to people then you are completely free to waddle off down to your local cop shop to lodge a complaint. Be sure to let us know how you get on.

The shiners have been much more careful about not asking people to break the law. Of course they are familiar with the offences against the state act!
