Scrap The Property Tax

The government is introducing a Finance( Local Property Tax) Bill to squeeze more money out of homeowners.

One-third of the taxpayers will see their bills increase by €90 a year.

An additional 100,000 who bought new houses since 2013 or were exempted for other reasons will also now be liable.

The property tax penalises people whose family home has increased in value because of market rates they cannot control.

You could be poor and living in an area like Ringsend in Dublin 4 and still pay more than a millionaire living in Mullingar.

People Before Profit will oppose this bill. 

We want a wealth tax and higher corporation taxes to hit the rich.
