Exemption for ghost estates is unfair

I'M not absolutely sure which minister to direct this question to -- finance would probably be a good start with environment to follow, or even the other way around.

What exactly makes occupants of so-called "ghost estates" needy of tax exemption, namely the impending €100 charge on owning a house, any more than thealready-pressed owners of a thriving estate?

Are they at some disadvantage to the rest of the country that they do not need to/cannot pay this new expense?
