LPT – What to do in 2021

Filing and payment deadlines

If you paid your 2020 Local Property Tax (LPT) using a one-off payment, and you want to pay your 2021 LPT by phased payment, you must submit your payment method by 25 November 2020.

No matter how you paid your 2020 LPT, you can select a different payment method for 2021. You can choose to pay in full in a single payment or spread your payments over 2021. You must notify Revenue of the change in payment method by 25 November 2020 through LPT online or via the LPT Helpdesk.

The date for paying your 2021 LPT depends on the payment method you select:

  • 11 January 2021: Latest date for paying in full by cash, cheque, credit card or debit card.
  • January 2021: Phased payments by deduction at source and regular cash. Payments through a payment service provider commence in January.
  • 15 January 2021: Monthly direct debit payments commence in January and continue on 15th each month.
  • 22 March 2021: Deduction date for Annual or Single Debit Instructions.
