THERE’S EXACTLY ONE week to go before the deadline for paying the controversial household charge with recent figures showing that more than 80 per cent of households have still yet to pay.

A rally against the charge is taking place in Dublin’s National Stadium this afternoon with several thousand people from across the country attending. Campaigners say the charge is unjust and are urging people not to pay it.

Meanwhile, the authority in charge of the €100 charge has said it expects a last minute rush in people making the payment by the end of the month to avoid late payment fees.

So today we’re asking: Have you paid the charge?

Poll Results:

No, and I won't (2609)
Yes (1056)
I haven't decided yet whether to pay (654)
I am not liable for it (636)
Not yet, but I will (408)
