Taxing our family home by 33pc when we die is pure greed
I read the article on taxing the family home by 33pc when you die or downsize (Irish Independent, August 3), and it came as no surprise. The tax system in Ireland is incredibly greedy, and it is being driven by faceless civil servants who appear to have no idea of what life is like in the normal world. Just who are these people?
It would be very interesting to have some names of those who are involved in deciding to take even more taxes from the ordinary working family.
Mind you, it would also give scope for increases in the gold-plated civil service pensions and lifetime job guarantees. That a minister should even contemplate this is scandalous.
