The payment deadline will be Jan 8th 2021 for anyone paying the Local Property Tax in full by cash, cheque, postal order, credit card or debit card.

If you want to pay the tax in full, in a single debit payment you will need to confirm that by the 8th January 2021.

Property Tax Valuation

The good news is that the original LPT  valuations from 2013 are still valid for 2021. The LPT valuation band you selected for 2013 stays the same until November 2021 (Unless you think it was wrong.).
Taxpayers will not have to face increased Local Property Tax bills for 2021 after the Finance Minister decided to defer the valuation date for the tax from November 2020 to November 2021 .
