Property Tax

'You will not beat us into submission' - man (73) pens anti-property tax letter

The letter from the 73-year-old says he will “take revenge” if there is any interference with his pension.

AN ANGRY LETTER purportedly written by a pensioner and sent to Revenue about the property tax has gone viral.

The unnamed 73-year-old – who, according to one Facebook member is her grandfather – dated the letter 8 March and according to various internet sites it was sent to Revenue.

The letter has received 3,738 likes and been shared 2,648 times on one Facebook page alone.

In the somewhat upsetting read, the author details why he will not pay the “unjust” tax, saying he has “f*** all more to give or to lose”. He goes on:

I have nothing more to give except my life but before I give that up I will take as many of you b******s with me as I can.
