    Fine Gael panicking over the forthcoming huge increase in the LPT tax robbery from family homes

    Excellent to see Varadkar and his fellow FF controlled minions feeling the heat over their banksters tax a.k.a. the LPT tax.
    Varadkar knows that Fine Gael will go the way of "labour" and be destroyed in the next election if forthcoming huge LPT increases go ahead because of madcap house price inflation. He knows that looting family homes via this most inequitable LPT tax for money will destroy FG's electoral base. The rapacious LPT is based on family home valuations in 2013. House prices have shot up in the meantime , by more than 60 per cent since then according to CSO figures it will mean huge increases for family homeowners, particularly those in Dublin and other urban areas where prices have risen the most.

    Varadkar: I’ll battle to limit rise in property tax

    Homeowners in south Dublin are being 'disproportionately hit' by property tax - TD - Independent.ie

    The artificial house price inflation created by Fine Gael by flogging property to vulture funds and restricting housing supply and the loathsome family home tax rapist Noonan, who brought in LPT to rob money from family homes to restore the banksters balance sheets and to enrich their bankster mates is coming home to roost.

    If FFG do not reform LPT and prevent these increases means it will be curtains for them in the next election.

    As Dublin is the powerhouse of the country and pays the bulk of state taxes Dubs should be excused this tax and those in others counties should pay more. They have the benefit of clear roads etc. (paid for by Dubs) so should cough up. The peoples republic of cork should pay additional taxes to reflect their loafty position.

    As you can see LPT is very much an anti Dublin tax, being honest it is an anti urban tax, worse it is totally inequitable as its not based on a citizens ability to pay

    That’s what you get from the FFGer's for having the cheek to provide a home for your family, remember the days when BellEnda rightly considered it immoral to tax a persons home…

    HBAP saying any further LPT increases will be minimal.

    They better be or disposable income taken out of the country from home owners and tenants.

    In fact ABOLISH it if possible.

    The solution here is really simple. Change it from a tax on the absolute value of the house to a tax on the relative value of the home.

    So if your house is average, you pay x euro.

    If your house is 4 times the price of an average house, you pay x times 4 euro.

    If all prices go up, the tax stays the same. Simple.

    where this works in Europe the house would have a tax value which is separate to the market value. however if FFFG want to continue to p1ss off people they are going about it the right way

    Abolish it and bring in a wealth tax.

    Any couple earning over €100,000 pa with net assets excluding family home of €5 million + pay a WEALTH TAX of .05%

    SORTED.

    Wealth taxes are messy and bureaucratic.

    Keep it the same.
    Increase the tax on the second house owned.
    Increase it further on the third.
    And so on.
