Not everyone liable for property tax will receive letters – but they still must pay

Not everyone liable for property tax will receive letters – but they still must pay

Josephine Feehily of the Revenue Commissioners

The Revenue Commissioners has said that several thousand homeowners – liable for Property Tax – will not receive letters.

The target of over 1.6 million letters have now all been sent to properties around the country.

However due to errors in the computer system – people who have not received one – must make contact with Revenue.

New figures show that 219,000 households have registered for the tax – with €1.3m so far collected.

The Revenue Chairperson Josephine Feehily said that 12.5% of the expected returns have been filed.

“The first LPT receipts have been credited to the exchequer, and with five weeks to go to the online filing deadline more 218,903 LPT returns have been received by Revenue to date,” she said.

“However it is important that I take this opportunity to remind property owners that they are liable for local property tax even if revenue hasn’t contacted them.”

    Every bit as important is an understanding of the changed composition of the government in this scenario. The graph below shows how the main categories of income and expenditure would evolve from 2005 through 2010 to 2015, in the scenario outlined above. Tax revenues would fall as a contributor of total revenues from 78% to 65%, while PRSI and other levies – the new social contribution mentioned in the Minister’s Budget speech – would rise from 19% to 29%. And that’s allowing for a property tax that boosts revenues that area by 60% over the coming five years.
