The Illegality of the Irish VRT System

208 Signatures Goal: 250

This is a petition for highlighting the illegality of the Irish Government's enforcement of the Vehicle Registration Tax. Here is a link to ruling by the EU declaring VRT a form of double taxation and that it is in fact, illegal. Main Points: The European Court of Justice has ruled aspects of vehicle registration tax are effectively a form of double taxation. The court has ruled this is illegal under the EU treaty. The ruling was welcomed by the European Commission which has called for the abolition of the tax. The Commission said states should ensure that their VRT systems did not impose a double taxation burden on those importing second hand cars from member states. (Source: http://www.online.ie/news/viewer.adparticle=1839443) As you can see, this ruling is nearly 8 years old and VRT not only is still in place, but has recently been changed meaning that people who cannot afford brand new cars will more then likely have to pay even more then before. Let us stand as one and not take this lying down
