Waterford Council want your opinions on the Local Property Tax

Waterford City and County Council have invited submissions from the public on their setting of the rate of Local Property Tax to be paid in the county.

The Local Property Tax Act 2012 makes specific provision that elected members of a local authority may pass a formal resolution to vary the basic rate of the Local Property Tax for their administrative area by a percentage known as the local adjustment factor.

The members of Waterford City and County Council will meet in September 2018 to consider this matter. They may set a local adjustment factor within the range of +/- 15% of the basic rate, or, may decide not to adjust the basic rate.

Waterford City and County Council is inviting written submissions, in writing or electronically, from the public on this matter specifically covering the potential effects of varying the basic rate of the Local Property Tax on businesses, individuals and on local authority services.

Further information can be obtained at www.waterfordcouncil.ie

To make your submission you can write to:

Local Property Tax Consultation, Finance Section, Waterford City and County Council, City Hall, Waterford

Email: LPT@waterfordcouncil.ie

Fill out the online form

All submissions must be received by August 25, 2018. There is no prescribed format for a submission.
