Figures provided by Revenue show that almost half of the 1.6 million Local Property Tax forms have been posted out. As of 22nd March 714,470 LPT letters had been issued .
Although the forms don’t have to be returned until May 7th and the valuation date is not until May 1st (28th May for electronic) – some people have already returned them.
Revenue say that 5567 people have filed online and 1436 paper returns have also been returned .
There are reports of forms being addressed incorrectly – but people need to be sure that a) if you get a letter and you are not the owner – you need to tell Revenue.
b) If you don’t get a letter and you are the owner – you should tell Revenue. They will get the tax off you eventually – and there may be penalties and interest to pay.
