Property Tax in Ireland

The government seems to be giving up on ever restarting the stamp duty gravy train they have lived off for the last decade and instead now wants to tax residential homes. In other words, we taxed you when you bought the house and now we want to tax you again because no one else is buying houses. Add to that the plan to tax children's allowance, pension lump sums and the sale of rezoned land and the government could well be facing protest marches numbered in the hundreds of thousands instead of just the thousands that brought down the medical card changes.
