    Default Property developers owe local authorities 750 million in outstanding levies.

    The hole in the public finances of this State which the government intend to close by introducing more taxes and increasing existing tax rates, isn't helped by the fact that developers owe €750,000,000 in unpaid levies to local authorities in Ireland.

    Property developers owe over

    Given that the Irish citizen has had to bailout the banks who recklessly borrowed money and then recklessly loaned this borrowed money to developers - it looks like the new taxes being raised will have to cover €750 million shortfall too.

    The Irish citizen is being asked to fund every conceivable shortfall at this juncture, it would seem

    The councils dispute that the amount outstanding is as high as €750 million
    Politics.ie moderators should moderate instead.

    Well most of these "development levies" were bogus. A guy in my down is trying to do up a place and open a shop, pub and off license. The council are looking for 48,000 in levies. Crazy stuff. A lot of it is for that old chestnut "on street parking".

    They are not far off it. I was doing a job and they looked for 6500.00. For some reason they then changed it to 440.00. No reason given. I think these levies are dreamed up by some paper shuffler in the bowels of the Coco offices.

    Wasn't it Meath County Council that was found to have uncashed cheques lying around at some point?

    Fingal and DCC owed almost a quarter of a billion between them.

    Though in our case it always seems to be just the one pocket.
