    Default Household Charges: Mayo County Council taking people to court.

    Despite being a "Fine Gael" County almost one in four people ther have failed to pay the charge and it looks like Mayo County Council have started the ball rolling with the first court cases.

    If the first couple of court showings don't go well for the Local Authorities then they have no stick to beat people with anymore after that. That will be the end of it, after that , if people see that they cant do anything then half the people who paid this time will not pay again.

    Bring it on. 500,000 people to sue will grind the country to a halt.

    Quick question. Surely they should sue any public representative that hasn`t paid his household charge in a region first ?

    The Regulation -
    S.I. No. 1/2012
    doesn't appear to make any provision for court appearances.
    Aren't such things as fines usually a part of a Regulation?

    Is it the case that the Council may only get the charge plus interest?
    Prosecution is hardly going to be worthwhile if that's the case.

    Tax dodgers should be pursued.

    All they do is pass the burden to other taxpayers.

    Proper order. Too many passengers on the backs of the decent people who pay their way in life.
