I oppose this tax and have no intention of returning my forms. But, I fear, this battle is lost. The Irish people had one great chance to bury this tax - last March. All they had to do was sit on their hands and not pay the €100. It would have been dead in the water if compliance stayed at 15-20-25%. Instead they flocked to the internet like lemmings on that last weekend.

The government will pay no attention to a march, no matter how big. The Irish political establishment treat referendums like inconvenient speed-bumps, ffs.

This could be as big as the anti-poll tax marches in England under the evil one ;)
Let's hope so.

This tax and the way in which powers were conferred upon the Revenue to pry on already fully compliant taxpayers is beneath contempt.
That's why I created a thread about this subject last December on P.ie.

If folk object to this tax they need to make the opposition public and heard.

50% of families who own just one house did not pay the Household Charge. Only 6% of households have registered for the property tax.

Can we judge the effectiveness of the campaign by the fact that, within hours of a 'major' protest march, one of the most virulent critics of the government and all its actions has not heard of the latest action against its policies?

The forms don't have to be back until May 7th - and some haven't even been issued yet - so 6% is quite good.

Re: the march - very little coverage in the media but there will probably be 10k at it.
