Local Property Tax Consultation

Under section 20 of the Finance (Local Property Tax) Act 2012, as amended by section 5 of the Finance (Local Property Tax) Act 2013, a Local Authority may as a reserved function resolve to vary the basic rate of the Local Property Tax within its functional area by a maximum of +/-15%.  This power is available to Local Authorities effective from 2015, the relevant sections of the act came into effect on the 1st of July 2014.

Any decision by a Local Authority to vary the basic rate of tax of the LPT must be taken by the 30th of September each year in order than it can have effect from the 1st of November (the liability date) and therefore determine the LPT liability for taxpayers in that local authority area the following year.

As part of this process the Local Authority should invite the views of the public. Dublin City Council now invites interested members of the public to engage in this consultation process. The consultation process will run from Monday 23rd July to 4.30pm on Wednesday 22ndAugust 2018.
