Sinn Féin has called for the Local Property Tax to be phased out and the Help-to-Buy scheme to be scrapped in its alternative budget.

The party also wants to remove tax credits for people earning above 100-thousand euro and for higher stamp duty on very expensive homes.

It says it would give all renters one month of rent relief, at a cost of 273 million euro.

The document also calls for more taxes on investment funds and for the pension age to be reduced back to 65.
