Well another night sees Sam in the hot seat. Tonight the panel looks at the 2-year anniversary of this FG-Lab Government - what has it achieved and what more needs to be done. So, I think they’ll also be commenting a bit on Michael Noonan’s interview on RTE this evening.
The second topic for tonight is on the Meath By-Election.
Now that the Revenue Commissioners are launching their publicity campaign about the Property Tax, tonight is a good opportunity to look at its implications.
At today’s press announcement they said homeowners will receive personalised assessment letters outlining details of the property tax starting next week which will take up to four weeks for the letters to be delivered to 1.6 million houses. From Sunday, an interactive guide for house values will go . A local property tax return will be included with the letter and homeowners will be able to choose a number of methods to pay the tax.
If homeowners do not respond to the Revenue estimate, they will be pursued for the monies.
Revenue Chairperson Josephine Feehily said that those who have not paid the Household Charge will still be liable for it. If people have not paid the charge by 1 July it gets converted into an amount of local property tax of €200.
Expect to see a bit of a ding-dong tonight between Doherty and Ó Snodaigh which should make for interesting viewing …
