Local Property Tax – 2022 Update

Bernard Doherty Bernard Doherty

Residential property owners who own a property on 1 November 2021 are liable to pay Local Property Tax (LPT) for 2022. This requires the home owner to self-assess the value of their property at 1 November 2021. This valuation will determine the amount of LPT payable for 2022 and for the three years from 2023 to 2025.

For residential properties which were built after 2013, LPT may not have been liable for the previous valuation period i.e. from 2013 to 2021. However, these properties will now be liable for LPT for the upcoming valuation period from 2022 to 2025 on 1 November 2021.
