PAYE Discrimination

| No TrackBacks

As a proprietary director of a company, my entire salary goes through the PAYE system. Recently, when submitting my tax return for 2002, I used Form 12 which is for company directors who pay their tax liabilities through PAYE. Why am I, and many thousands of other salaried directors, ineligible for the annual PAYE tax credit of €660 ? This discrimination which should be addressed in the forthcoming budget.

Red Cow Roundabout

| No TrackBacks

So the Mad Cow Roundabout, formerly known as the Red Cow Roundabout, looks set to become the Dead Cow Roundabout while it is being rebuilt. If tolls are introduced, it could then become the Cash Cow Roundabout  to complement its very profitable sister at the West Link. Might this become another case of motorists paying through the nose and being milked at the same time.

This is all a roundabout way of asking why private funding is being considered for the rebuild at a time when the Exchequer is awash with funds for such "essentials" as benchmarking and the National Pension Reserve Fund.
