RTE has learned that a major capital gains fundraising event is taking place in Dublin today with an estimated 1,500 people expected to attend.
The capital gains raising event will take place at the Dublin Airport and is the second capital gains fundraiser in the last three weeks and follows a fundraising event in the UK last week.
The Dublin event will have a range of events including a fundraising dinner, a dinner and a panel discussion on capital gains and capital gains taxes.
It will also have a live auction and a number of live auctions taking place over the coming days.
It is believed that up to 400 people will be attending the event, which will be held at the airport’s terminal 2, on the third floor.
The airport’s public address system has been set up to inform the public of the event.
The event will be chaired by a senior executive at the Irish National Airports Authority (INA).
It is expected to attract a number people from across the capital.
The fund raisers have raised over €4 million in capital gains so far.
The INA has set up a website which allows for people to find out more about the fund raising events and where they can go for more information.
The Government has been very open about the need to encourage more people to participate in the capital gains tax debate and this is a great opportunity for people who are interested in raising capital gains, particularly people who do not currently own property or earn more than €60,000.
