For the first time, Local Property Tax forces every homeowner in Ireland to deal directly with the Revenue Commissioners. 1.6 million of us have made property tax returns, but this new tax is far from simple and sometimes mistakes will only become apparent at the most critical time – when we go to sell a property. This book explains how to resolve all the common problems people face when dealing with Local Property Tax. For regular taxpayers, the issues surrounding who is liable, what happens when a property changes hands, and how to claim relief from the tax are explained in clear terms. The authors provide many real-life examples to illustrate what needs to be done, and when.

For accounting, legal and property professionals who need a more in-depth commentary on difficult issues, a unique section-by-section analysis of the legislation is also included.

Surviving Local Property Tax is an invaluable reference for those who either have to pay Local Property Tax, or advise on it.
