Daylight robbery

I received a letter from Revenue on Friday.

I haven't heard from them in a long time, so naturally wondered what they were blathering about.

"My records show that you have not met your LPT obligations in resect of this property and a liability and/or Return remains outstanding for the period(s) specified below"

So I have not met my "obligations"?  Seeing as I had forgotten about them and their fucking Local Property Tax and they hadn't bothered their arses reminding me then that's not surprising.  Did they think I was itching to pay the fucking thing?

"I serve notice that if you do not pay the outstanding amounts within 14 days from the date of this letter, I will issue an instruction to RTE SUPERANNUATION SCHEME to deduct the amount in equal instalments from payments to you over the rest of 2015"

What the fuck?

The syphilitic little poxbottles are fucking threatening me?  This is the first I have heard from them and this is their attitude?

This really is going too far.  They impose a tax on something that I have paid dearly for over the years.  I paid a crippling mortgage for the best part of thirty years.  I paid stamp duty twice.  I paid a fucking inheritance tax and now finally I own my own property and they want to tax me for the privilege.  Even worse, they don't even try to think up and excuse for this tax.  It's not paying for anything.  I get nothing in return.  It is just plain theft.  We want your money for no reason other than we want it, and if you don't give it, we will steal it out of your pension.

Fuck the little cunts.  I have little option but to pay the fucking thing, just as I would have to pay a mugger with a pistol stuck in my back.

I am not a happy bunny.  I have a tinge of resentment towards being mugged. 

I shall write to them by email.  I will attach a document that outlines my grievances.  I shall point out that it is the lowest of the low in bad manners to threaten someone with a first approach.

Actually the document won't contain any of that.

It will contain a nice little virus that I captured a while back and I have been keeping it for a special occasion.

I think this occasion fits the bill?

  1. The bassads caught up with me a year ago in the same manner as with you. To date, I have had no correspondence with them whatsoever and I let them do what they will, on the suspicion that they received my 100 euro registration fee for their extra work. They will more than have earned it with me by the time I shuffle off. In the interim, I have found other ways to avoid VAT, (Black market, or, the dark economy, as they like to call it) and guess what, they'll need to deduct a lot more from me to ever catch up with what I am now saving from them.

    • Any dealings I have that involve payment [with the exception of ordinary shops], the first thing I ask is whether they take cash or barter.  The savings have been significant, to put it mildly.  I have a couple of other tricks up my sleeve so, while I resent paying the property tax, it represents only a small portion of the savings I have made.

  2. Property taxes has just become a mortgage you can never redeem. I too finally own my house but will have to pay to live in it for the rest of my life. It used to be a reasonable amount and they would pick up large items free, deal with wasps nests free to say nothing of the extortionate cost of planning and building regulation inspection, they were here for five minutes last time. Now we have to pay for everything including garden waste collection. All I get is two bins emptied.

    • Wasps nests?  Bins? HAH!  Wasps nests are up to me.  Bins and other waste I already pay for.  The property tax pays for nothing.  It is supposed to pay for the local council amenities such as parks, playgrounds, streetlighting and the like. Seeing as there aren't any of those around here, and seeing as the tax is collected by Revenue and not the local council then I can only imagine it goes to swell the coffers of gubmint.

  3. Property tax is rent paid to the gubmint.  You never really own your own home.  I like the email ideal.  I have a nice piece of ransom-ware I could let you have for free.  I know how to get rid of it but I let it infect a jump drive of mine.  It's just sitting there waiting for a windoze machine to infect.  🙂
