    I was given a flyer last week by a representative of the group calling themselves "Attack The Tax" they have a website attackthetax_com. They are looking for 2 to become a shareholder in a Special Purpose Vehicle which is being formed to challenge the legality of the household tax. The claim is that by being a shareholder involved in this case postpones the requirement to pay the charge. Is there any legal basic to this?

    "We are giving this Ard Fheis a clear commitment to the people that if elected we will abolish the family home tax". Pearse Doherty.

    Excellent, that'll really put the sh1t up the FFailures and the austerity government.

    The champagne socialists of Labour will be shaking in their boots now...

    Aren't SF being a little dishonest?

    Their solution to the nation's financial ills is a wealth tax but their wealth tax INCLUDES THE FAMILY HOME LESS A 20% DISCOUNT OFF THE MARKET VALUE PLUS OTHER ASSETS YOU HAVE ACQUIRED OUT OF YOUR TAXED INCOME.

    This means that if you live in Dublin, struggled to buy a second home to provide a pension then you are likely to be among the 'wealthy' to be hit by this 'wealth' tax. Pathetic!

    Are you saying someone who buys a second house shouldn't be taxed on it?

    I think its great news that SF are going to abolish the hated family home tax

    Just what we need another populist party.

    It is not possible to close a €12bn deficit without significantly impacting on people on high, middle and even low incomes. it just isn't doable.
    However, the sad reality is that many people still believe it is and will vote for it.

    Stealing peoples houses is a step too far, when you consider all these people worked for their homes, they didn't sit on their arses like thousands of others and expect the state to give them a home..........a joke of a country.

    Populist, thats good, FG and Lab both fooled people with promises and changed their tune as soon as they got their ar$es into the ministerial limos.

    Austerity shouldnt just be for the workers, lets see the tears in the wealthy folks eyes and then we'll know "we're all in it together"

    They aren't stealing their homes, they are imposing a tax on the value of an asset. Similar to what is done in many if not most other developed countries.
