Land tax fury

Date: Wednesday 11 Nov 2009
Time: 6.30pm

Venue: Shipwright Arms Hotel (beer garden), cnr Trumpter and Colville Sts, Battery Point, Hobart.

An ad was in Saturday’s Mercury 7 Nov 2009.

Owner of Shipwrights Arms is Gordon; email is info@shipwrightsarms.com.au

“Please let other Land Tax payers or concerned individuals know about this meeting and encourage them to attend,” said Gordon.



What ABC Online says:

A Hobart pub owner slugged with a land tax increase of 500 per cent says he has been inundated with calls from other concerned businesses.

Land revaluations in nine Tasmanian municipalities have driven up land tax bills.

Gordon Latimer from the Shipwrights Arms in Battery Point has organised a public meeting tomorrow night.

He says he is expecting a big turnout.

“I’ve had many many phone calls from very worried business people, small business people and investors in units and houses who have all received massive tax increases,” he said.

    Another nail in David Backdoor Bartlett’s Tasmanian Labor Party Government coffin.

    How about a referendum on the pulp mill too Barty?

    Need to get some Land Tax public meeting like this happening up north too. Maybe at the Tailrace Centre?
