Extension of Reliefs for certain Disabled / Incapacitated Individuals
Revenue has prepared guidelines on the recent changes to the rules governing the qualification for these reliefs. The guidelines describe how a residential property qualifies for the reduction in market value or the exemption under the new arrangements, and how to make an application to Revenue.

Customers with outstanding LPT issues / Household Charge Arrears

As part of Revenue’s compliance campaign, reminder letters have issued to property owners who have not met their LPT obligations for 2013/2014 or who have not paid their €200 Household Charge. Further information is available at: Reminder Letters.

Where no response is received, a range of collection/enforcement options are being utilised by Revenue to collect the outstanding LPT/Household Charge arrears, including enforced collection from a property owner’s wages or occupational pension, referral of the debt to a Sheriff or Solicitor for collection, or the debt may be the subject of Attachment orders. Other possible consequences of continued non-compliance include the withholding of Tax Clearance Certification, surcharges on Income Tax, Corporation Tax and Capital Gains Tax returns and withholding/offset of any other tax refunds.
