Sinn Fein speaks with a forked tongue, because over the border, no more than a few miles away, they happily consent to property tax being applied up to an average of £1200 per house, here on this side of the border they are suddenly the champions of the common man, if they were in power tomorrow, they would soon be changing their tune, the same as the FG/lab liars, and stick their snouts deep into the trough, with the rest of the swine.
Double standards to the highest order..
Have you seen that the FFailure party has uploaded a anti household tax website,, “Jesus wept”… the level of hypocrisy and the neck of a brass giraffe, would make a saint eff and blind themselves silly.. What a bleedin country???
I Paid over 9000 euro in council fees to build my house. Under these changes where water charges ? In which I had to buy all materials and pay builder to do it… Sewage charges ? In which I had to buy my own Pruaflow treatment plant which they said had to go in… Why in gods name would I pay another 100 euro on a household charge!!! One cent a week is what I can afford – But you will have to come collect it as I cant afford the stamp.
Agree 100 per cent….same as…I live in the country..no footpaths, no public lighting…no public sewage system …lots of pot holes..I have paid 8k…would i pay anymore when i get nothing back
@Tomtom. Just incase you are unaware…. “over the border, no more than a few miles away” the property tax is more commonly known as rates and is indexed to a lengthy list of service such as street lighting, street repairs, street cleaning, proper sewage/sanitation, refuge collection, free public dump facilities to name but a few from a long list of things that you get in return for your rates. WHEREAS down this side of the border you get very few if any of these! This tax was nothing more than a quick money grab to pay off bondholders. County council aleviated themselves of any responsibility for our estate when they applied a condition to the planning permission for a private management company to which we already pay €200 a year to provide all the the services the council dont. If we call the council about anything they say its not their problem! then there is large amount of development fees collected from the builder and ultimately us the buyers which the council were meant to use to upgrade the approach road, install a footpath and street light which of course never happened!! If they want to abolish our management company and take over servicing of the estate then i’ll pay but I wont pay both!
Was it not Sinn Fein that insisted on the so called Holiday Home Tax of 200 Euros for people that had to leave home to work in another country, plus 100 Euros Service charge plus if you try to rent out your home to help cover expenses another 90 Eurs to PTA, not a bit wonder that you can now buy 2 Houses for 45,000 Euros.
