New survey finds 80% of taxpayers want the hated USC charge to be scrapped




Fanned Euro notes

A recent survey shows that 4 our 5 people want the hated USC tax to be abolished for good. However, the survey reveals that the majority of those people think the government will never scrap the USC charge.

Just five years on from its introduction the Universal Social Charge (USC) is still a major talking point with those who see it as just another unjustied tax.

According to the new survey of its clients Taxback.com (here) found that more than half questioned want USC to be scrapped immediately with a further 30% wanting it scrapped within the next few years.

Taxback.ie spokeswoman Christine Keily total the Mirror:
“It has been dubbed Ireland’s most hated tax and the results of our survey would support this.

They revealed that a staggering 80% of respondents think it needs to go – but some would vote for more immediate action than others.”

Christine continued:
“In every country there is always going to be some discontent with the way taxes are gathered.

But in Ireland it seems that most people know that taxes are a necessary evil but are not happy because they think they are taken unfairly from those who don’t have it.

“Others are disheartened by the fact that they don’t see that we are getting good bang for our buck.
