I am informed by the Revenue Commissioners that compliance data in relation to the Local Property Tax (LPT) is available broken down by city and county councils nationally and the most up to date figures for LPT collected relating to properties in Longford and Westmeath County Councils were published on 16 April 2014 on the Commissioners' website at: http://www.revenue.ie/en/tax/lpt/lpt-stats-0414.pdf.

The Commissioners have also 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. By the end of March 2014, a further €214.3m was transferred by Revenue to the Exchequer.
