Poll: Should people living in areas with more businesses pay less property tax?
Reports today suggest that Fine Gael could be committing to this as part of their local elections manifesto.

PROPERTY TAX COULD be reduced in areas with a higher concentration of businesses, according to a report in the Irish Times today.

Fine Gael’s local election manifesto will contain a commitment to reduce the tax in areas where the local authority receives higher commercial rates, the newspaper says.

This means that rural areas are unlikely to benefit as there are generally fewer businesses operating in them.

We want to know what you think: Should people living in areas with more businesses pay less property tax?
