DETAILS ABOUT HOW Revenue will work out the value of a property – and thus the level of tax paid on it – emerged this morning with a lengthy report in the Irish Independent.

Reporter Fiach Kelly revealed GPS technology will be used to measure a home’s proximity to shops, transport, schools and other amenities which all impact on property value. Letters will be sent in the coming weeks to inform homeowners how much they will be charged in July as part of the new Property Tax regime.

The system takes over from last year’s controversial Household Charge, which was collected by local authorities but left unpaid by about 500,000 people. From July 2013, the Revenue Commissioners – which is known to be tougher on debt collection – has taken over the task.

In today’s poll, we ask: Will you pay the Property Tax?

Poll Results:

No (2552)
Yes (1302)
I'm exempt (1145)
I'm not sure yet (710)
