Residential Zoned Land Tax (RZLT)

The Government’s Housing For All – A New Housing Plan for Ireland proposed a new tax to activate vacant land for residential purposes as a part of the Pathway to Increasing New Housing Supply. 


The Residential Zoned Land Tax (RZLT) was introduced in the Finance Act 2021. The process to identify land to which the tax applies is now underway and the tax will be payable from 2024.


The objective of the tax is to activate land that is serviced and zoned for residential use or mixed use, including residential use, in order to increase housing supply and to ensure regeneration of vacant and idle lands in urban locations. These locations have been identified within existing statutory land use plans at Gorey, Courtown, Bunclody and Rosslare/Kilrane.


1st January 2023 is the last date to make submissions regarding removal of land from maps if considered to be outside scope or requesting change in zoning. Submissions may also be made recommending land for inclusion on the maps.
