Abysmal Intro[edit]

The intro to this article does not say in what way "Rates" specialize "Property Tax". If there is no difference, then why not just redirect to "Property Tax"? If no one can be bothered to point out in what way "Rates" specialize "Property Tax" then who added the "High Importance" marker? Jim Bowery (talk) 14:01, 31 October 2011 (UTC)

Who pays rates?[edit]

As I recall from living a year in England, the council tax is levied on the occupant of a house, not on the owner. This distinguishes rates from other property taxes, which are levied on the owner, not the occupant. The article should clarify this issue. I don't consider my personal recollection a reliable source and I'm not certain how this applies to the occupant of a flat (etc.) --SteveMcCluskey (talk) 17:03, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

I propose this article be merged with property tax, per the comment above and the substantial overlap in coverage. Having two articles with the same country coverage makes maintenance difficult. Compare Ireland in both articles, for example. --agr (talk) 14:05, 29 September 2013 (UTC)
