Revenue sends 150,000 letters to property owners

By Dan Walsh

Revenue have published statistics on Local Property Tax (LPT) for the first quarter of 2023, detailing LPT collection of €314 million so far for 2023. The current payment compliance rate of 90% shows that most property owners have met their payment obligations.

Commenting on the importance of property owners making sure that they pay their LPT liability or set up a payment method now, without delay, Ms. Katie Clair, Head of Revenue’s LPT Branch, said:

‘’All residential property owners were required to set up their 2023 payment method by 10 January at the latest and the vast majority did exactly that. However, some property owners haven’t yet paid or set up a payment arrangement and they now leave themselves open to collection and enforcement action by Revenue.

“We have issued 150,000 letters to property owners who haven’t yet paid or set up a payment method to pay or arrange to pay. Property owners who fail to do so may be subject to a range of collection and enforcement actions by Revenue including mandatory Deduction at Source (DAS) from salary or pension, withholding of tax clearance certification, the application of surcharges on income tax, corporation tax and capital gains tax returns or offsetting of other tax refunds against LPT arrears.”

“I urge all property owners who haven’t made arrangements to pay their LPT to take immediate action and use this opportunity to ensure they are fully compliant with their LPT obligations,” concluded Ms. Clair.
