Wrong Tax Wrong Time

Thanks to everyone who has supported our campaign against the introduction of a Property Tax.

The Government has provided details on their proposed Property Tax and the legislation to make it law will be introduced in the Dail tomorrow.

The property tax will apply to all family homes, homes paying a management fee, homes that paid stamp duty, homes in mortgage arrears, homes negative equity, homes of the elderly, sick and unemployed. People who cannot pay will be taxed more. This tax is designed to increase peoples personal debt.

The Government has only allowed a couple of hours for general debate on this really important legislation and even less time for the committee and final stages where amendments can be proposed. Clearly they are trying to ram this through without any debate. This is totally disrespectful to every homeowner in the country.

It is time to shout STOP.

Every TD will have an opportunity to stop the Government from introducing an unfair Property Tax by voting against this legislation tomorrow.

You can make your opposition known by taking a couple of minutes now to email your local TD and as many other TDs as you can and ask them to represent you tomorrow and to vote against this unfair Property Tax.   A full list of TDs email addresses is available here. Ask everyone in your address book to do the same.

This property tax is the Wrong Tax at the Wrong Time.
Thank You.  Mary
