Couldn't get through to the property tax helpline today? This is why...

Everyone had the same idea.

REVENUE RECEIVED MORE than €1 million in local property tax payments today, and over 30,000 calls to the LPT helpline.

The majority of calls related to property owners who paid their 2014 LPT, but have not either paid or made arrangements to pay this year.

Due to the “unprecedented level of calls”, Revenue said “some callers may not be able to get through” and encouraged them to email lpt@revenue.ie with queries instead.

Revenue said 130,000 LPT compliance letters were issued last week in respect of unpaid 2013, 2014 and 2015 charges.

The body has urged people to pay online at www.revenue.ie, describing it as the “quickest and easiest way to make arrangements to pay LPT”.

If a property owner chooses the ‘Single Debit Authority’ option, the payment won’t be deducted until 21 March 2015, unless an earlier date is specified.

Alternatively, the property owner can spread the LPT liability over the remainder of the year by selecting deduction at source from their salary or pension, or direct debit from a current account.
