Calculating your liability

The amount of LPT due for 2016 depends on the value declared for the property on 1 May 2013 and the LPT rate applying to the property for 2016. Property values are organised into valuation bands. The tax liability is calculated by applying the tax rate to the mid-point of the band. The rate of LPT is 0.18% for properties up to a market value of €1m. Residential properties valued over €1m are assessed at the actual value at 0.18% on the first €1m in value and 0.25% on the portion of the value above €1m (no banding applies).

Some local authorities have adjusted the LPT rate for 2016 by up to 15% (a list of these is provided at the end of this page). This will affect the amount of LPT you have to pay for next year as outlined in the following table. Some local authorities who adjusted the rate for 2015 have made further adjustments to the rate for 2016. For ease of comparison the tables below show the local authorities who made rate changes for 2015 and 2016.

This year is similar to last year because 11 local authorities have reduced their LPT rate resulting in 7 different LPT rates. The reductions range from 1.5% to 15%. 5 local authorities have increased their rate compared to last year; Cork County Council, Limerick City Council, Mayo County Council, Westmeath County Council and Wicklow County Council. Revenue will make the changes automatically. Because county boundaries and postal addresses are not always aligned, there will be cases where the LPT rate is incorrect. If the local authority assigned to a property needs to be changed, owners can let us know online or contact the LPT helpline. A dedicated team will be available to handle these cases.
