Changes To Local Property Tax To Be Delayed Until 2021

48,000 homeowners will continue to be exempt from paying Local Property Tax for a further two years.

At the moment, properties bought since 2013, along with those in ghost estates or affected by pyrite damage, are not liable to pay the charge. 

They were due to start paying by the end of this year, however the Minister for Finance is deferring reform of the property tax until 2020 to allow TDs to review how it's calculated. 

Minister Paschal Donohue says it wouldn't be fair to be start charging exempt homeowners until reform takes place
