Poll: Have you paid the Household Charge yet?

With details of the property tax to be announced this week, we’re wondering: Have you handed over the €100 yet?

ONE OF THE FEW certainties about this Wednesday’s Budget is that it will include a new property tax, to replace the ill-fated and deeply unpopular €100 Household Charge introduced only last year.

The new tax, which is reported by many papers to be set at 0.2 per cent of the value of a home, will replace the flat-rate €100 charge, which was intended as an interim combined property and household charge.

It’s been reported that the property tax will only kick in in the second half of 2013 – meaning the future of the €100 charge is not quite clear in the meantime. However, it’ll be definitely gone by next July when the property tax kicks in.

So – with its days officially numbered, we’re asking: Have you paid the Household Charge yet?

Poll Results:

No (3412)
Yes (1333)
