Property Tax 2020

The 2020 Local Property Tax (LPT) liability date was November 1st 2019.

Therefore, if you owned a residential property on November 1st 2019 you are liable for the Property Tax on it for 2020.

If you wanted to change your payment method for 2020, you should have amended your LPT online record by 25th November 2019. 

The payment deadline was the 10th January 2020 for anyone paying the Local Property Tax in full by cash, cheque, postal order, credit card or debit card.

If you wished to pay the tax in full, in a single debit payment you should have confirmed that by the 10th January 2020.

Revenue sent out letters in October 2019  to those who paid by lump sum. This was to ask homeowners to confirm their payment option again for 2020.

Note:  Property Tax payments by Single Debit Authority were originally due to be taken from bank accounts on 21st March 2020 . Because of Covid-19 , Revenue has moved the payment date to July 21st 2020 . This change of date is automatic. Property taxpayers who have opted to make the payment by annual debit instruction do not need to do anything.

If you paid the 2019 LPT  by Direct Debit or by deduction at source, that method of payment will continue automatically for 2020. There is no need for these people to complete any forms etc. (Unless they want to change their method of payment).

Property Tax Valuation

The good news is that the original LPT  valuations from 2013 are still valid for 2020. The LPT valuation band you selected for 2013 stays the same until November 2020 (Unless you think it was wrong.).

If you live in an area where the local council has changed the LPT for 2020 you should get a letter confirming the new rate.

Anyone who bought a home in 2013 is still exempt from LPT until  the end of 2020 – see more about that here
