Under Property Tax regulations – from 2015 onwards – local Councils could adjust the annual property tax rates, up or down each year, by as much as 15% from the base rate. All the decisions for 2016 had to be made by September 30th 2015 – and these are the results of all the local authorities decisions on the Property Tax for 2016 . None of the local authorities voted to charge more than the rate set by government.

Clare County Council
