Almost 1,000 properties a day are still being registered for the household charge, new figures have revealed.
People had until March 31st to pay the €100 charge or face a fine. However, despite that deadline having passed, many more are continuing to sign up.
A total of 805,569 had paid the charge by the deadline but the latest figures show that 933,308 have now registered – up 6,047 on the previous week’s figure of 927,261.
It has also been revealed that the number of properties that have registered for a waiver has now passed the 15,000 mark.
The controversial household charge is expected to be replaced by a property tax next year with an expert group set to report back on their recommendations by the end of the month.
