DCC asks Dublin residents for views on Property Tax

Dublin City Council has invited submissions from the public on whether they think the Local Property Tax (LPT) should be varied in Dublin city or not.

Section 20 of the Finance (Local Property Tax) Act 2012 allows the Elected Members of Dublin City Council to vary the LPT rate by plus or minus 15% from 2015.

The Council must ask the public for their views on this and take these views into account before making a decision.

All submissions received will inform a chief executive’s report which Dublin City Council will present to Councillors on Monday, September 22, 2014.

Should the members decide to vary the rate, Dublin City Council must inform the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government and the Office of The Revenue Commissioners by September 30, 2014.

Any variation which may be made would apply from January 1, 2015.

Anyone who wishes to take part in the public consultation process can complete an online survey from today until Wednesday, August 13, 2014.

County Councillors in Fingal last night voted in favour of cutting the levy by 15%, meaning households could save up to €100 .

Dublin City Council will have to ratify the decision in September, however.
