Another week and another period of uncertainty for thousands of homeowners, especially older people, when it comes to property tax. No details and no clarity are on offer. The Government, instead of offering certainty and publishing the long overdue review of the local property tax, is providing vague promises and talk. There are utterances that the vast majority won't be affected by increases, so who are they? There's talk of no dramatic increase in the tax. But what's not dramatic financially for one person is a genuine hardship for another. And we well know it.

Questions remain among homeowners about the local property tax and once and for all, they deserve an answer.
