Forgot to pay or won't pay?: The property tax deadline is tomorrow

People who have not yet paid their local property tax have been urged to make contact with the Revenue Commissioners.

WHETHER YOU HAVE decided not to pay your local property tax or simply forgot, the deadline for single payment is tomorrow.

While January is hardly the most ideal month to be forking out large payments, Revenue have sent out letters of reminders to people who have yet to pay about tomorrow’s deadline.

Many people still seem to have some questions, with over 25,000 people calling the Local Property Tax Helpline by 5.30pm yesterday.


If you pay your property tax in instalments, don’t worry, you don’t have to do anything.

If you are going to pay by credit or debit card, you will have to pay up by 8pm tomorrow, while people who provide their bank details will see the money coming out of their account on 21 March.

You need to notify Revenue by tomorrow that this is the option you are going for again this year.

If you have lost your Revenue letter from last October, you can log on to the Revenue website with your PPS number to get your details again.

Since Revenue took over the Property Tax payments, compliance has risen to over 95%.

Concerns were expressed last week that as house prices rise, so will the property tax.

However, Taoiseach Enda Kenny confirmed that the rates will be reviewed to ensure that they don’t sky-rocket.
