Public Consultation on Review of Local Property Tax (LPT)

Mr Paschal Donohoe T.D., Minister for Finance and Public Expenditure and Reform recently announced a review of the Local Property Tax (LPT) which is looking in particular at the impact on LPT liabilities in the context of property price developments in advance of the revaluation date on the 1st November 2019.

The purpose of the review is to inform the Minister in relation to any actions he may recommend to Government concerning the overall yield from LPT, its contribution to total tax revenue and the best way of achieving that objective. The review is being conducted by an interdepartmental working group chaired by the Department of Finance and a consultation process is now being launched to inform this work.

It is intended that the review group’s report will be presented to the Minister for Finance in summer 2018.
