No Tax on Family Homes


0 have signed. Let’s get to 9,000.

Sign this Petition if you agree that:

Family Homes which are basic needs (shelter) and "essential to life" should not be taxed in any modern Democracy.


  • Shelter (a home) is a basic need in the hierarchy of needs.
  • Basic needs are not taxed in decent societies, such as food, water, air, clothes, sanitation, healthcare, education, personal transport ...etc 
  • This EU sponsored tax on Family Homes is odious and anti-family. 
  • Italian voters have scrapped this hated EU Tax on Family Homes in Dec 2015


No EU Government has a mandate (consent from voters) to tax Family Homes. Try a Referendum if you claim otherwise. By signing this petition the Petition Letter below is emailed to Government Political Parties)


 Life Essentials should not be directly taxed in modern Democracies:-

  • Food,
  • Water,
  • Air,
  • Shelter (family homes),
  • Personal mobility (Cars ..),
  • Clothing (Children's cloths!),
  • Sanitation
  • Healthcare
  • Education


Family Homes are not:-

  • Wealth - no revenue streams to pay the tax. 
  • Assets - can't liquidate them to pay the tax - no where to live.
  • Property, like farm land (UNTAXED), Offices, industrial buildings, pubs, shops ... 

Family Homes are where families live with their kids.

Legitimate and just Taxes are those which have the support and consent of the electorate. This Tax Law on Family Homes does NOT have the support or consent of the Irish electorate and is therefore not legitimate, as the citizen is sovereign in this Irish Republic.

This Home Tax Law is offensive, regressive and exploitative. It is anti family.

Social Democrats are now getting the message on the door steps:- Reduce the interest rate applying to Local Property Tax deferrals to the level of State borrowing costs, and explore other ways that this tax can be reformed to improve "ability to pay".  Bullshit Social Democrats: apply the principle of just and fair taxes or get out of the swamp. Abolish is the only just way to reform this odious law.


  • Tax bank financial transactions (FTT). 
  • Tax wealth (potential revenue stream or disposable assets).
  • Tax spending on non "Life Essentials."
  • Tax spending on non basic services.
  • Tax profits to 12.5%.
  • Tax (progressivley) above basic income (living wage).

LPT on Family Homes is a 2-Tier Tax

  • Owner Families are targeted for this odious LPT Tax
  • State housed Families do not have to pay this LPT Tax!


TDs, Senators and MEPs are elected to represent citizen interests NOT the interest of lobbies (e.g banks and other financial predators)

Your Irish TD has given the Revenue Commissioners the power to take the Local Property Tax (Tax on your Family Home) from:-

- your bank account
- your pay 
- your welfare payments
- your pension
- your family, when you die.
- your Medical Expenses Refunds

You know you live in a dangerous country when ......  "The rights of the State come before the rights of the citizen."


 Unjust Enrichment : (see Canons of Taxation) 

It is not acceptable that Tax on Family Homes is used to:-

  • pay off the bad debts of private companies i.e. Banks. 
  • prop up banks pension funds, bonuses and inflated salaries.
  • pay increases to Government employees when 300,000 in the private sector had to emigrate.


Arbitrary Seizure of property by the State:-

  • by levy of this Tax-Rent with no consideration for inability to pay.
  • deferral if people can't pay, until they die, and then take it from their families.
  • force people to sell their homes so that some wealthy person can buy them!


Bankocracy NOT Democracy!

Europe looks more like a Bankocracy or Taxocracy NOT a Democracy!


The internet opens the door to Direct Citizen Democracy.

"You can vote now to instruct your TD on how to vote in the Dail"

You don't have to wail 'till the next election!
