Just got my lovely glossy booklet from Irish water.
First paragraph 'It costs about €1.2 billion per year to run the current system, with most of this funding coming from state sources'
Why doesn't it just state that the funding comes from the Irish taxpayer and that any new charges are just an income tax hike by proxy?
Will there be a reduction in income tax, VAT, property tax etc etc once they bring this new tax in?
Are the government trying to get to a system where all of our income is returned in taxes?
Why would anyone want to 'better' themselves, improve their lives, when they will be taxed on everything they do?
