Poll: Have you paid the household charge yet?

Some householders are receiving warning letters in error but have you paid the €100 tax yet?

AN ESTIMATED 1.6 million households in Ireland have been liable for the household charge for just over ten months.

But just over a million have actually paid the €100 levy so far with some of those having to incur late payment penalties and interest while there are hundreds of thousands who have so far avoided payment, protesting against what they believe is an unfair tax.

Today we learned that some of those who have paid the charge are receiving warning letters in error but anyone who hasn’t paid the charge currently faces a bill of €127 and rising.

So, today we want to know: Have you paid the household charge yet?

Poll Results:

No, and I won't (1755)
I'm not legally liable for it (1597)
Yes (1114)
Yes, including a fine (1019)
No, but I will (326)
