The debate begins – property taxes for Ireland

At last, those who have killed all  thought and discussion about property taxes in Ireland, for what seems my whole lifetime, are being flushed out into the open. Their intellectual weapons turn out to be surprisingly weak.

Ronan Lyons takes up their challenge here with a well laid out demolition of their (mainly) logistical arguments in his well researched blog.  Ronan does not seem to be aware of an even better proposal to taxes on property values, that of land value taxes. Land and taxes have yet to be permitted into the same sentence in the public media – but we are confident our time will come. Let us now take a back seat and enjoy the show provided by the brave proponents of property taxes who will bear the first volley of the outrage of landed interests.
