“No Irish Water Tax!” has been scrawled in white on top of a new tower on 37th Avenue in Flushing, Queens [New York] — apparently a message against the new tax for water consumption in Ireland.
The tax is assessed for everything from drinking water to using the toilet, but its connection to the Flushing building, or when the message was painted, is unclear.
Calls to the building’s owner were not immediately returned. The building was issued a partial stop work order on Jan. 12 for expired permits, according to the Department of Buildings.
A construction worker outside the building said he wasn’t aware of the graffiti.
“What is a water tax?” the worker, who declined to give his name, asked.
