Public Meeting in Ballinteer on Property Tax
This meeting will provide an opportunity for residents to discuss the Property Tax, to get information on the details of this unjust tax, and the boycott.
This meeting will take place in Ballinteer Community School and begins at 8pm.
Resist The Property Tax
In the coming weeks the Revenue Commissioners will write to all households with a bill for the new Property Tax. This tax has been set at 0.18% of the value of the home up to €1 million, after which a rate of 0.25% applies. This mean that if your home is worth €250,000 you will be expected to pay €405, for a €300,000 home, €495 and so on.
This tax is grossly unfair. It takes no account of the ability to pay. So a pensioner living in a house worth €500,000 with an income of €12,000 will still be expected to pay €855 every year! Yet again, the burden falls on ordinary people while the richest 36,000 woho own wealth of approx. €130 bullion remain virtually untouched. It should be called The Bank Bail Out Tax. Coming after years of austerity budgets and wage cuts, this is a tax that huge numbers of people simply cannot afford to pay.
Fight The Property Tax. You can't afford not to.
We do not have to accept this. The government can be beaten. While the Revenue Commissioners have been given draconian powers to enforce it -including the ability to deduct it directly from wages and social welfare -a massive campaign of people power can force the government to scrap their plans.
Boycott this tax and help build a campaign of protest and civil disobedience that will create a political crisis for governement. We need our unions to act and support workers who refuse to co-operate with the implementation of this unjust tax.
A Campaign is being built across the country. Get involved by coming to the meeting advertised above. This is your chance to question your local TDs directly on this issue. The meeting will plan a campaign of local and rational protests. Come along, join in the discussion and help the Campaign
