Now families face €50 hike in car tax revamp - National News - Independent.ie
It seems there going to be going after the post 2008 cars.
The government had to leave it a while before they hit these motorists but it's now 4 years so I think the government will now hit them.
Some motorists with new / under 4 year cars are paying 160 or 225 a year.
Some of these cars have large engines (well large for Ireland) and if they were to be taxed under the old system they could be paying multiple times the amount they are now paying.
I wonder which cars will pay less - older cars or smaller engine cars or small engine post 2008 cars, perhaps.
Present car ratesAnd the Irish Independent has learned ministers have targeted motor tax to bring in an extra €150m in December's Budget -- meaning motorists face an average annual increase of 15pc across the board.
"It doesn't mean that everyone will end up paying 15pc more, some will pay more and some will pay less," a source said.
