What will the next tax be.

The sugar tax is in now. The min alcohol pricing coming. What other tax's do people see coming because sure as hell they will. Coffee cup and plastic tax are probably the two next one's.

And sure as hell the sugar tax won't be used to fight obesity. Not a chance. The same as the property tax. That is just used to pay something else off. See the bin charges are now including green bins. Like anything once they get them in they just go up.

This min alcohol pricing will start at a level on go up. And its starting at nearly two and a half times the Scotland level. It seems this govt are just hell bent on taking what little pleasures people have left and taxing them on them.

Property tax to be expanded to new builds for sure anyway. Plug that hole they see coming. Some kind of motor tax reform is definitely on the way too.

We already pay 2 taxes that fund water:
  • Motor Tax
  • General Taxation


Should we introduce a third?

I lump these under the blanket "happiness tax", soon to include the orgasm tax, the after-work-5-a-side tax, the tax tax (where you pay tax on the tax you already paid) and of course the 2 euro for a hostel tax - where you pay the government 2 euro or be locked in a hostel.

Under His Majesty King Leo no fun is allowed unless you pay handsomely for the privilege or die. Each one is acceptable to our fabulous Monarch.

Tax on buying second hand cars over 10k.

Similar to the VRT system where you pay a fee to transfer ownership.

I hate to break it to you but the tax tax (where you pay tax on the tax you already paid) has already been introduced, where you pay VAT on duty for fuel.
Or if registering a new car you pay VAT on VRT.

.
If you take it that your wages are taxed, then the fuel itself is taxed, then the tax on the fuel is taxed, it works out roughly, that to purchase €50 worth of petrol you need to earn €200 - the government then takes €150 of it

I would like to see a Muppet Tax. A tax on all of the complete idiots out there.

The tax should be voluntary, so that only idiots pay it.

It should be disguised as a product that you don't need and it should be superficially attractive but essentially useless.

I am thinking along the lines of the lottery but that is already there so it has to be something new.

Any ideas?
