Homeowners warned against 'fixing' values - National News - Independent.ie
Alan - you picked a great platform to announce yourself to the nation.HOUSEHOLDERS are already planning to deliberately undervalue their houses to cut down on their property tax bills, a government TD has claimed.
There are fines of up to €3,000 in property tax legislation for those who knowingly make a false declaration.
But FG Dublin North TD Alan Farrell said he had learnt that some householders in his constituency were discussing a 'price-fixing' system – so that all the people in their street or estate would provide the same deliberately low value to the Revenue.
Has he reported the specifics to the Gardai? or Revenue?
SURELY HE HAS A DUTY TO THE STATE,
Or maybe he is withholding information from the authorities.
