Road tax for Irish gas-guzzlers to soar
posted on Jan 19 2017 by Keith Langford
If we think we are hard done by when it comes to paying road tax in this country, spare a thought for the Irish motorists.
The government there is moving to a system based on emissions and as from July this year any car emitting in excess of 226g/km of CO2 will have to pay £1,500 per year.
Cars emitting less than 120g/km will only have to pay £78.
