Written answers (Question to Finance)

I am informed by the Revenue Commissioners that compliance data in relation to LPT for 2013 and 2014 was published on 18 February 2014 on the Commissioners website at: http://www.revenue.ie/en/tax/lpt/lpt-stats-0214.pdf. The report includes details of the number of properties that filed a Return for 2013 and the amount of LPT collected for 2013 by city and county council. The report also provides a breakdown of the percentage distribution of properties across the 20 valuation bands nationally (based on Returns filed for 2013).

The Deputy may be aware that the deadline for property owners to bring their LPT affairs (including the Household Charge) up to date and avoid interest or penalties was yesterday. I am advised by the Commissioners that their current priority is processing the large volume of Returns and payments received and they expect to publish more detailed data and analysis, including analysis in relation to the number of properties in each valuation band in each city/county council area in due course.
