    Default Property Tax - A letter to Revenue - Ireland 2013

    The below is a letter received by Revenue last month, i'm gonna keep the OP short as I think that the letter speaks for itself,



    I know that many will disagree with the threats contained in the letter, and I'm quite sure the Guards are already involved,

    However, shouldn't we also be asking what has driven a 73 year old man to make such threats, against other Irish people?

    Shouldn't this guy, having worked all his life, be left alone to enjoy his retirement, pottering around garden centers and going out for a quiet pint with the other old timers or whatever?

    Is the state there to serve the people, or has it become their enemy?

    One can not fault the man for his views. I suppose at this stage it is to be expected.

    Sounds like something Hitch typed up on a rainy afternoon. How do we know it's genuine?

    You should take that down. For your own sake.

    I'd also ask what drove a 64 year old man to buy a house.
    I have no money, but I love my life.

    Perhaps he preferred a house to a care home?

    Can't see revenue publishing any letters it receives. So it's either a copy of a letter or bullsh1t!
