The Finance (Local Property Tax) Act 2012 (as amended), 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.
At a meeting set by Fingal County Council to consider this matter, the members may set a local adjustment factor within the range of +/- 15% of the basic rate, or, may decide not to adjust the basic rate.
Fingal County Council welcomes submissions 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.
The period for submissions is from Wednesday 16th June 2021 to 12 noon on Thursday 1st July 2021.
All submissions, including the names and addresses of those making submissions to the Council, will form part of the statutorily required report to be presented to a meeting of Fingal County Council. They will also be included in the minutes of that meeting and will appear on the Council's Website.
On 1 June 2021, the Cabinet agreed to bring forward legislation that will propose changes to how Local Property Tax (LPT) currently operates. Further information can be found on the Revenue website https://www.revenue.ie/en/property/local-property-tax/lpt-revaluation-2021/index.aspx.
