IF YOU’D BEEN planning to submit your Local Property Tax return by paper, today’s the day to do it.

Revenue extended the deadline by a week due to a large volume of queries on the issue.

Close to a million homeowners received letters in recent weeks asking them to outline how they intend to pay the tax for next year. The letters included some options which would require full payment this year.

Those filling out their return by paper will have to get it in the post today. Revenue says that it will accept all letters postmarked with today’s date.

However, if you miss the deadline, the online date for those who are filing their return for next year, and who need to indicate which method they intend to use pay the tax, is 27 November. In that case, those who choose to pay online by credit or debit card will see the amount paid over in the following few days.

However, those who wish to pay the full amount by card can also tick a ‘cash payment option,’ and pay by card at a Payzone by the end of the year.

There a total of seven different options for paying the levy, including ones for phased payments.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny has said that the Government’s preference is to receive the bulk of the funds next year, and encouraged people to look at the other options provided by Revenue.

The opening hours of the local property tax helpline – 1890 200 255 - have been extended to cope with the level of queries on the issue. It’s open from 8am to 8pm today.
