What do I need to know about Local Property Tax (LPT)?

Local Property Tax is based on property value and helps to fund your local council. This value is self-declared and most people usually judge it based on the latest sale price of the property or similar properties nearby. Therefore the LPT valuation for the next year should be based on the price the property sells for. If you purchase the property during the year, you would need to refund the current owner pro-rata for a tax they have paid. Your solicitor will look after this during the sale agreed process and will take care of this. Here are the Local Property Tax Bands based on 2022 Rates:


It is important to note that each local council can increase or decrease the property tax for its residents by up to 15%. To get a full breakdown of your local property tax including local council adjustments, go to Revenue.ie or your local council's website.
