Home owners angry at property tax change

The home owners lobby group VEH says it is considering legal action after the home affairs ministry reached a deal with local councils to abolish the ceiling on property tax (ozb) rises.

Councils may currently increase property tax, which is used to fund local government, by up to 2.75% a year. The VEH says it fears the tax may go up by between 20% and 40% in some areas.
The change is part of government policy to give local councils more control over certain policy areas.
