County Mayo Property Tax to Drop by 3% in 2015

Members of Mayo County Council have gone against the advice of senior officials by voting for a  3% reduction to the Local Property Tax  in the county.

The proposal to seek a 3% reduction was made by Councillor Al McDonnell (FF)

The lowest rate of Property Tax in 2014 is €90 euro – this will drop to  €87.30 when the 3% cut is made.
A house with a Property Tax in Band 2 (currently €225) will see a fall to €218.25 in 2015.
