I assume that the question refers to the Household Charge and the Local Property Tax. The Local Government Management Agency has administered the Household Charge system on a shared service/agency basis for all county and city councils. I am advised by the Agency that in excess of €5.3m has been raised in respect of the Household Charge in Kerry. The aggregate proceeds of the Charge have been re-distributed on an equalised basis to local authorities within the context of the annual allocations of general purpose grants.
In 2013, Local Property Tax revenue is accruing directly to the Exchequer. Under the Finance (Local Property Tax) Act 2012, commencing in 2014, the Minister for Finance will pay into the Local Government Fund an amount equivalent to the Local Property Tax paid into the Central Fund during that year; this revenue will be allocated to local authorities from the Fund.
