Before you get ideas above your station, read the post, I never said you were a corrupt scumbag, I said you are merely their pathetic jock strap, but now I'm thinking your only one of their dried up arse clinkers. Keep typing for upper mount street, there's a good girl, we know you're paid by the post.

It is an act. If you get the bill send it back unopened and write on the back no contract. get a proof of postage when sending it back.
If you pay this 100 euro then you have legally entered into a binding contract, forcing you to pay up future payments. That is why this introduction offer is so low,
Don't sicken me with your party politics. All Irish parties are the same, just trying to get their own corrupt cronies in power and sticky fingers in the jampot instead.
This is about the Irish people standing up for what is right.
It's about people not wanting to pay. That's why FG got into power. SF and ULA are saying they will bring in a wealth tax which is exactly what a property tax is.

Great idea from someone on the link on page 103-http://www.facebook.com/#!/permalink...44762212234425
Have every St Patricks day parade "sabotaged" by an Anti Household Charge float!! - Classic, and beam it around the world!!
Enda and Phil- wouldnt lil ol Ireland look well then!
As I said earlier property taxes have failed here twice and once in the UK. It's not common to levy a tax on your home in most developed countries. England's poll tax is such an example.
So yeah, it's not a new thing. But its some thing that we can say doesn't work and hasn't worked here.
If the government want a council tax then let's have it. A properly regulated system where money isn't spent on the black hole of PS pensions and poorly performing systems.
Without accountability and responsibility this new tax will be seen as a sham by visitors from other countries and act as a barrier to job creation by raising the cost of living for potential employees.
It's a non runner. It always has been a non runner and until the Government get their shit together and sort themselves out it always will be.
You offered your opinion but your still here fighting your points across, looks to me like you really want people to pay this tax, why I have no idea.
Can you not see that your loosing? The majority rules so you can say what you want but people are not going to pay this and its that simple. You go and pay it with your buddies, we will be the ones laughing when your paying a grand next year.
Donal are you in government?? I find it amazing, your supporting this stupid tax like mad! Get the message people are paying out enough already and everyone knows that this new tax will jump way beyond €2 a week very soon
By the way Donal I never said people should not pay taxes, this is the reason why you where unable to quote me.
Anti people well done again, its important that everyone is proactive with this protest make sure you tell everyone your not paying.
The blindness is unreal
You still do not get it, we are not fighting this over a po$% €2 charge please get this into your head, we are fighting this law as it will open doors to more taxes and these will rocket to outer space!!
The household charge is the red flag to the bull this is why it needs to be put down now before the damage is done therefore dont register dont pay!!
No Steve, im not anyway and 95% of the country have not paid it yet either, check the polls above and look at the anger in government and public this is causing... so think before you consider signing an agreement that may cost you a substantial amount in the next few years

Property taxes failed because of political opportunism, the exact same thing you are complaining about!
Sorry for using logic!
People are not going to pay straight away. These taxes get paid nearer the time.
Fantastic I agree 110% it is not €2 a week god sake you will find this on the street in a few days if you look hard! We want of the rollercoaster the ride has been long enough we are sick of it and im sure rocket and I speak on behalf of the majority of the population (the ones that are not afraid to make a stand)
I have said this over and over again, if the government see that they have not got a chance they will look into alternatives, where there's a will there's a way. Just because there may appear to be an easy solution to something does not make it the right one.
Not this time!!
This thing has caused to much outrage, there are professional people many of them who has paid everything all there lives myself included even from financial controllers to post men, they say the same thing "im not paying"
People who are saying ah we will all end up paying it..... no we wont!!! Look at the water charges? everyone said no there was mass objections to this and the people won!!
Everyone needs to understand there is power in numbers, the government are people like you and I if we stick and stand together this tax will be abolished and this is a FACT.
I couldn't care less if people pay it or not I have only ever said I will pay it because it's the law and I don't feel that I can pick and choose the taxes or charges I pay.
I may even agree this tax is stupid and there would have been far better ways to raise 160m but unfortunately I can only discuss the household charge as it is now.
I also fail to see how I could be "losing" as i can't see how there are any winners. Those that pay are down a hundred quid those that don't have a charge registered against their property so everyone loses
