Now that property taxes are under discussion what should be the basis of same.
In fairness surely only those who receive a free benefit from the local authority should have that benefit taxed.
The majority of homes in Ireland receive
1] Free water.
2] Free sewage disposal.
All of these utilities function via public networks paid for by the taxpayer.
Is it fair that rural taxpayers on private wells and septic tanks should continue to subsidize by their taxes these freeloaders?
