Facebook Page for Local Property Tax Petition:


TIP: If, through fear, you feel you have to pay this offensive, regressive tax, then:-

1. ONLY PAY BY CHEQUE in 12 monthly installments by post. 

2. Do not sign LPT Form. It is a trick to get you to sign a consent form. All tax is ultimately by concent. Write a letter (of protest) instead.


The grossly unjust and most regressive Irish Car Tax System also deserves your signature at:-

YOU subsidise NEW CAR OWNERS road tax!     


Your 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.

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


Family Homes are not:-

- Wealth - they don't earn revenue streams to pay the tax. 

- Financial assets - can't liquidate them to pay the tax - no where to live.

- Property unlike land > 1 acre, including farm land which is NOT Taxed!

Family Homes are where families live with their kids.

Legitimate and just Taxes are those which have the support or consent of the electorate.

This Home Tax-Rent Law does NOT have the support or consent of the Irish electorate.

This Home Tax Law is offensive, regressive and exploitative. 

The Home Tax Law is anti family.


Tax bank financial transactions (FTT). 

Tax wealth (potential revenue stream or disposable assets).

Tax spending on non basic goods. 

Tax spending on non basic services.

Tax profits.

Tax above basic income (living wage).

(Paying Tax on homes "people own" is paying Rent to a Government Landlord!)


We elect TDs and Senators and MEPs to represent our interest NOT the interest of lobbies (e.g banks and other financial predators)

Whoever abolishes this FAMILY HOME TAX LAW will win the next election.


Many in Negative Equity and now "elected" TDs want to Tax Homes!

€16.8 billion (15.1%) in arrears in Irish residential mortgage debt and TDs try to tax homes?. Enormous purchase tax (Stamp Duty) was already paid on these homes. Another anti-social tax.


Unjust Enrichment : (see Canons of Taxation) 

We do not accept paying Tax-Rent on our Homes to be used for:-

- paying off the bad debts of private companies i.e. Banks. 

- propping up banks pension funds, bonuses and inflated salaries.

- pay increases (increments) to Government employees when 300,000 in the private sector had to emigrate.


Arbitrary Seizure of our 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!

Hollande, the President of France called the banks the "real enemy". Is he right?


The internet opens the door to Direct 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!

Change this Irish Government Local Property Tax Law by signing this ePetition.

I have signed an ePetition to all Irish TDs, Senators and MEPs at:

"Repeal the Local Property Tax Law".

It is not acceptable to pass a law to tax Family Homes. This was clearly rejected by previous Irish elections. The Irish electorate does not support this law.

Family Homes are not wealth. They do not generate revenue streams. They are not disposable assets - no where to live.

"It is morally wrong, unjust and unfair to tax family homes." (Enda Kenny - 1994)

This Family Home Tax Law is offensive, oppressive and exploitative. It is a "regressive" tax law with no consideration for "inability to pay". It is anti family.

No EU Government has a mandate to tax family homes.

I will vote at the next election only for TDs, Senators and MEPs:-
- who support this petition
- who represent the interest of Irish home owners
- who represent the wishes of the electorate and not the interests of others
- who support constitutional change to outlaw tax on family homes.
