Local Property Tax information leaflets and the LPT return are due to issue from Revenue to residential property owners commencing from next Monday, 11 March. We have clarified with Revenue that the majority of individuals will receive their information leaflet and LPT return by post. However, individuals who are actively using Revenue Online Service (ROS) to manage their own tax affairs will receive their information and LPT return via ROS. Revenue has also confirmed that payments of the LPT can also be made at the local post office in cash or by debit/credit card.
While individuals will receive correspondence from Revenue on the LPT and their LPT return by post beginning from next Monday, individuals who themselves are active on ROS are advised to monitor their ROS inbox. This is because individuals who have a ROS Digital Certificate, file their relevant tax returns on ROS (not via an agent) and engage with Revenue on ROS will receive their LPT communication into their ROS inbox. The issuing of LPT information and the LPT return, by post and electronically, will commence from next Monday 11 March and will run over a number of weeks.
Readers should also note that each property has been allocated an individual property ID, which is also unique to Revenue, and along with an allocated PIN, must be used by each individual to pay their LPT. Details will be included on the correspondence to issue from next Monday.
Revenue has also confirmed the following with Chartered Accountants Ireland that “An Post, Payzone and Omnivent have completed the application process as payment service providers through which house owners can pay their Local Property Tax in cash or by debit / credit card” Chartered Accountants Ireland understands that details of all the service providers will be made available on the Revenue website soon.
We also asked of Revenue if there will be LPT information seminars provided around the country, we understand that details of such seminars will be included with the LPT communication strategy to be published later this week.
Members will be kept informed of developments with the LPT via Chartered Tax News.
In the meantime, readers wishing to read more on the LPT may find the Revenue website of use.
