Poll: Have you paid the household charge?
Almost every homeowner in Ireland is liable for the controversial charge, but have you paid it yet or will you at all?

HOMEOWNERS HAVE NOW been liable for the household charge for nearly two weeks and as of the end of last week 18,000 people had paid the controversial €100 annual tax.

Almost anyone who owns a home in Ireland must pay the charge or establish an instalment arrangement before 31 March or else they will incur a late payment fee which could be as much as 30 per cent of the charge.

While the government argues the measure is a necessary to raise revenue before a fully graduated property tax is introduced within the next two years, many, including some TDs have argued that the flat charge is unfair and hits poorer people disproportionately. A campaign to boycott the payment is already underway.

Today, we want to know have you paid the charge?

Poll Results:

No, and I won't (1541)
No, not yet but I will (1014)
Haven't decided whether to pay (834)
I am not liable for it (607)
Yes (294)
