60,000 Homeowners Face Property Tax Bills For The First Time


Share this article


Tens of thousands of homeowners could be in line to pay property tax for the first time.

Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy intends to make them pay in order to avoid introducing an increase for those already paying.

Around 60 thousand households have been exempt from paying the property tax levy since its introduction five years ago.

That's according to The Sunday Independent.

At the moment, annual charges range from more that €500 in some parts of Dublin.

The additional revenue would be distributed to local authorities based on greatest need.

The latest figures show the Government raised 477 million euro from property tax last year - and one third of that was paid to the four Dublin local authorities.
