    Default The new Property Tax that is coming in - what would happen if people refused to pay?

    As a protest, what would happen if people, en masse, refused to pay the new Property tax?

    I mean a proper organised refusal to pay as a protest against the Government whereby thousands and thousands of people just refuse to pay it?

    En masse? Such a refusal would have to be organised with a national committee and local branches the length and breath of the country. No such organisation exists or is even likely to exist.
    Pure fantasy.

    If it is a flat rate and if it comes in while they keep stamp duty, this mama aint paying the same flat rate as some guy in a "mansion", I don't care, I have had enough. They have been spinning this for 2 yrs like the child benefit options (means/tax)/water rates and have done nothing on progressing it fairly. So they can stick their flat rate up their asses.

    God I am angry today.

    Same as what happens if you refuse to pay any other tax. Jail.

    That's the nice thing about property tax, it's almost as good as PAYE. Don't pay it and have your property seized.

    I wonder if they play it like a temporary flat rate tax until they have the mechanisms in place to base it on value of properties and spin that we are all in this together.

    STILL NOT PAYING IT

    You don't need "committees" for people to stand up themselves and say they've had enough.

    When's the "tipping point"? Cos it has to be fairly close at the moment...
