Fintan O’Toole: A huge tax break for comfortable people
“The Government has shown its true colours with its cynical inheritance tax stunt”
There is irony here.
Fintan O’Toole is “giving it socks” today, re the rights and wrongs (mostly wrongs) of the new inheritance tax rules.
And a few days ago, in his newspaper, was the ex. AG of Ireland (deceased), indicating how HNWs might avoid all such taxes.
Even more ironic, is that the Irish Times, Fintan’s paper, highlighted the ex. AG’s “transaction” not as potential evasion but …
… to ramp high-end property prices (make the HNWs richer), and try to pass it off as a real “sale”.
