Written answers (Question to Finance)

As the Deputy may be aware, the rate of DIRT will be 33 per cent as respects the year of assessment 2020 having been reduced by 2 per cent per annum from 41 per cent in Budget 2017 and Finance Bill 2016.

As is the case with all taxes, any possible future changes to the rate of DIRT are considered in the context of the Budget and Finance Bill processes.
