Property tax a "huge challenge" for Revenue

In its annual report today, The Revenue Commissioners have admitted that implementing the property tax was a “huge challenge” for them.

Revenue said because it had drawn up a list of homeowners from multiple sources there had been errors, which it had anticipated and had tried to explain.

It said when it started preparing to collect the tax there was neither a complete register of residential properties nor a system of valuing homes in place, which represented a “huge challenge”

Revenue said the new tax, which comes into effect in July, was “easy to pay but difficult to avoid.”
