I am informed by the Revenue Commissioners that compliance data in relation to the Local Property Tax (LPT) for 2013 are available broken down by city and county councils nationally and the most up to date figures are published on the Commissioners website at: http://www.revenue.ie/en/tax/lpt/lpt-stats-11-2013.pdf.  The Commissioners have confirmed that by the end of December 2013 €318m had been transferred by Revenue to the Exchequer in respect of LPT. Of this amount, €242m was in respect of LPT for 2013 and €76m relates to 2014 LPT. The Commissioners will publish 2013 year-end compliance data and also preliminary data in relation to 2014 shortly.
