Written answers (Question to Environment)

A vehicle constructed or permanently adapted for the purposes of lifting, towing and transporting a disabled vehicle, and used solely for those purposes, is taxed in the contrivance class, which carries an annual tax of €333. If the vehicle is used for the carrying of other goods, it is taxable at the goods rate. The annual tax will depend on the unladen weight of the vehicle.
