Local Property Tax - Setting A Local Adjustment Factor

Dúnta19 Iúil, 2022, 9:00am - 29 M.F., 2022, 5:00pm

The Finance (Local Property Tax) Act 2012 (as amended), makes specific provision that elected members of a local authority may pass a formal resolution to vary the  basic rate of the Local Property Tax for their administrative area by a percentage known as the local adjustment factor. At the meeting set by Wexford County Council to consider this matter, the members may set a local adjustment factor within the range of  +/- 15% of the basic rate, or, may decide not to adjust the basic rate. 

Wexford County Council will meet in September to consider the setting of a local adjustment factor.

Wexford County Council welcomes written submissions from the public on this matter specifically covering the potential effects of varying the basic rate of the Local Property Tax on businesses, individuals and on local authority services.

Submissions must be received by Friday 26th August and can be submitted by registering and using the Council’s Online Public Consultation Portal at   https://consult.wexfordcoco.ie
