Poll: Should the new property tax be deducted from PAYE?

The Department of Finance says it’s up to the Revenue Commissioners to decide how it’ll be levied. Should it be at source?

THE DEPARTMENT OF FINANCE has said it’ll be up to the Revenue Commissioners to decide how exactly people are asked to pay the new property tax, coming in as part of the next budget.

While ministers have still yet to decide on whether the new tax will be site-based, house value-based or uniform, Revenue could yet decide to deduct the tax directly from pay packets.

This presents some difficulties – in that not all people pay income tax – but would be seen as a way of avoiding the non-compliance that has blighted the €100 household charge which will be replaced by the new tax.

What do you think? Would it make sense for the Revenue Commissioners to deduct the tax directly from pay packets, in order to ensure the tax is paid – or does this throw up more problems than solutions?
