Not every person in Ireland was charged the same rates of Local Property Tax (LPT) in 2015 because several councils have voted to make cuts to the LPT.
In 2013 and 2014 all 26 counties in Ireland were charged the same levels of Property Tax based on the valuation band of their properties.
Under Property Tax regulations – from 2015 onwards – local Councils can adjust the annual property tax rates, up or down, by as much as 15%. All the decisions had to be made by September 30th – and a total of 14 local authorities have decided to cut the property tax in their area. The overall fall in LPT revenue will be €43million as a result of these cuts.
The following local authorities have decided to make the maximum 15% cut in 2015:
Clare County Council
Dublin City Council
Dun Laoghaire + Rathdown Council
Fingal County Council
South Dublin County Council
Wicklow County Council
A 10% Reduction has been agreed by Cork County and Cork City Council
A 7.5% cut to LPT will be made by Kildare County Council
A 3% cut to LPT will be made by Mayo County Council . Limerick City & County Councils, and Longford County Council, Westmeath Co Council
A cut of just 1.5% has been made to LPT by Louth County Council
The reduced amounts of LPT that will be charged are shown in the table below.
