The campaign against the household charge has welcomed the fact that up to 90 per cent of homes have yet to register to pay.
Nine TDs today reiterated their call for people to boycott the 100 euro charge.
Deadline for payment is the 31st of March - and the Government says penalties will be incurred after that.
Independent TD Thomas Pringle says the number of people who have yet to pay has nothing to do with a confusing payment system:
"It's clear to be seen from the numbers attending public meetings right across the country. I spoke at a meeting in Cavan last night where over 150 people turned up, and the unanimous view of those people was that they aren't registering and they aren't paying, and its regardless of what method of payment the government introduce for this tax".
