Variation of Local Property Tax - notice of consideration of setting a local adjustment factor

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.

This means that Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council can increase or decrease the basic rate of the Local Property Tax within the County within the range of a maximum of +/-15% or may decide not to adjust the basic rate.

A decision to vary the basic rate of LPT applies to the next charge period and is effective for that one-year period only, after which the rate reverts back to the original basic rate on the 1st November, unless a further decision on a local variation is made prior to that date by the Elected Members.

The Council will meet on Monday 30th August 2021 to consider the setting of a local adjustment factor for the charge period 01/11/2021 to 31/10/2022. The Council welcomes written submissions from the public on this matter.

Submissions must be received by the 15th August 2021 and may be made using one of the following methods.
