I paid my LPT today online. After much internal wrangling I accepted the rather conservative Revenue estimate.
I live in a neighbourhood of thousands of identical houses, so my limp justification was that they have no excuse for getting the estimate wrong.
As I hit "submit" there were voices in my head shouting "TAX EVADER!!!!" but I'll learn to live with the guilt of possibly depriving the Revenue of €50 or whatever.
You do understand self assessment? I hope you are not self employed.
The powers granted to the Revenue to facilitate the collection of this are an extraordinary extension of their legal powers. Almost at the customs level.
I couldnt be arsed with the HC (my better half did that). I filed this one promptly.
