Over 900,000 have now paid household charge

The number of people who have registered to pay the new household charge surpassed the 900,000 mark today.

According to Local Government Management Agency figures, the total estimated number of properties registered numbered 900,392 at midday today.

The figure is still far short of the 1.6 to 1.8 million households who are liable to pay the €100 charge.

The deadline to register and pay the charge came into effect on March 31 and therefore anyone who pays from now on will incur fines.

    Agree with you…the conformists who paid are the people in good jobs & pensions who can ‘afford’ to pay.

    Hundreds of thousands of people have been devastated by this recession (through no fault of their own) many have emigrated, many are barely surviving, some have taken their own lives.

    We need to stand up to these banksters and bureaucrats and say ‘NO MORE TAX FOR YOU GREEDY PIGS’.

    Those that paid are going to be the very ones that will whinge and whine when they start getting bills for 600,700,800 euro for there household banker bailout charge in the coming years. What is wrong with the Irish people yee sit there and take it up the ARSE sure there,s nothing we can do we have to pay it. If the household tax gets through I would just like to say to the people that paid it,THANKS VERY FUCKING MUCH.
