Have your say!
The majority of Local Property Tax collected is to be used for the delivery of local authority services including maintenance of public parks, provision of local libraries and leisure facilities, fire and emergency services, homeless services, street cleaning, provision and upkeep of street lighting, roads and footpath maintenance as well as planning & development services. The legislation that introduced the Local Property Tax allows for a +/- 15% adjustment to the current rate applied. A public consultation is currently under way with regard to a decision being taken by Dublin City Councillors on this adjustment.
I would encourage everyone to participate in this consultation, by way of a survey, and have your voice heard. The survey can be accessed at http://www.dublincity.ie/local-property-tax-consultation It can either be submitted online or by post. Please note that the consultation closes on Wednesday 13th August.
