Slow progress on property taxes

Despite the €100 household charge introduced in last month's budget, the Government is still making haste extremely slowly with the introduction of a property tax.



In fact, it is difficult to avoid the impression that the Government is doing no more than is absolutely necessary to keep the EU/ECB/IMF "Troika" sweet.

Now economist Ronan Lyons of property website daft.ie has devised a scheme that would allow not just for the rapid introduction of a property tax, but one that would also minimise the inherent unfairness of any such tax towards residents of Dublin and of the other large cities.
