The latest figures on household charge registrations were provided by Minister Hogan recently in the Dail . He stated that as of  8th June  2012,a total of 932,575 property declarations had been processed by the household charge bureau. 915,408 had registered for payment  and  17,167  registered for a waiver. There were also  an estimated 17,700 postal declarations yet to be processed. This gives a total number of 950,275 .

On May 30th the figure was  945,014  – so that is an increase of  about 5000  in just over a week.

We reckon  there are about  1.76 million properties that could be  liable for the Household Charge  (See our calculations here)
So – 950275 works out at  54% of  the  liable properties that have been  registered.
