Below is a letter to local residents from Councillor Gerry Breen regarding the Property Tax. Please have a read of this as it contains some very useful information.

"Dear Resident,

Many people have asked me about the local property tax. It is a self assessment tax and there is no need to employ a professional valuer.

You submit in the coming week or weeks what you think your house/apartment is valued at.

Key Dates

  • Wednesday May 1st is the valuation date for the Local Property Tax is not a deadline but merely a notional date.
