Valuing your property

Has your Local Authority Rate changed?

From 2015 onwards, Local Authorities can vary the Local Property Tax (LPT) base rate on residential properties. The base rate is the rate as applied in 2014. The Local Authority can increase or decrease the rate by up to 15% from the base rate. This is referred to as the ‘Local Adjustment Factor’ (LAF).

Local Authority increases and reductions for 2021

Some local authorities increased their rate for 2021, while others have opted to decrease rates for 2021. 

Revenue did adjust your LPT record if your Local Authority adjusted your LPT rate for 2021. You can use the online calculator to calculate your annual LPT liability.        

The following table shows the rates that apply for 2020 and 2021. The table confirms which Local Authorities have adjusted the rate for 2021.
