According to the Irish Daily Mail, property tax bills may rise by 15% next year.

COUNCILS will be allowed hike the property tax by up to 15 per cent after September next year, it emerged yesterday.
Revenue Commissioners chief Josephine Feehily said that while the value of our h mes for tax purposes will n hange before 2016, bills may still rise as the percentage rate at which the LPI' is levied can be increased.
Ms Feehily said this possibility had been 'well flagged', but Opposition spokesmensaid homeowners had been 'given the clear impression' that the LPT would be fixed until2016.
And the Revenue Commissioners' letter sent out to householders seems to back this up. It states: 'The amount of LPT you have to pay depends on the market value of your property, on May 1.
It seems that we were given assurances that the valuation of the property was to stand until 2016 but now there are claims that the councils may increase the tax for the year 2015 and onwards.

What is this place coming to? Tax your way out a recession appears to be the only way these politicians can think!

The market value of your property on the 1 May 2013 will form the basis of the calculation of the tax for 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.”
Yeah you can pretty much see why people are ticked.

Excellent news. We will all be able to give 15% more to help

bail out bondholders who lobby the EU
buy school sites in the middle of nowhere for half a million
pay for more quangos
pay for pensions for the useless clowens in the last government
pay for more propaganda from Pravda (don't ask about the Lowry tape)
prop up newspapers that lied to us in the boom
prop up banks that lied to us in the boom
prop up NAMA which is controlling the real estate market
prop up institutional state coverups
provide jobs for FG/LP canvassers, and deputies relatives.

With the kindest of respect, but do you believe that this will happen? We are not all in the B&Q league...
Oh I dunno. I think it's a runner for SF/SWP/Inds to say "You're paying 200 this year, FG/LAb want to make it 230, I'll make it 170" and make inroads in the council elections.

The market value will stand as given in the guidelines until 2016, its the percentage levied on that value that will/might change depending on Local Authority next year.

And the 15% isn't based on the value of the house, its 15% of the tax rate (0.25% of value i.e +/- 0.0375%) charged. That translates to +/- €37.50 per 100,000.

The Indo highlighted this last month but to many it does come as a surprise as they took it as meaning the amount they will pay will remain static until year end 2016.

Wait, wait.....is there anyone on this forum that didn't think this was the case?

A few weeks ago a friend showed me the property tax calculator website. At the time, his home was said to pay E330. Next year it said it was nearly six hundred....lols. Obviously untrue, but this increase year on year has been on the cards since the start.

I doubt it! What we need is a proper opposition and the raggle-taggles, as they were once called in the chamber, will have little say in the matter!
Dunno. Claire Daly is launching her new improved Socialist party tonight. She even has a fb page. I'd link to it but my head melted reading it so i'll spare you.

What you pay this year is for 6 months or so, next year will be double what you pay this year.
The years after that will see a 15%-20% increase on that amount every year.

You have been warned.

DON'T REGISTER / DON'T PAY.

I'm the last person on this site that you need to say that to.

it's easy money for the politicians to waste, of course they'll up it at almost every opportunity, like the fags, petrol and the gatt

Just for clarity -

0.18% of value up to €1,000,000.
0.25% of value thereafter.

And yes the +/-15% is the maximum 'local adjustment factor' on the 'basic rate' under Section 19 of the Act.
