Property tax blow for some Southsiders

HOMEOWNERS in Dún Laoghaire Rathdown will face higher property tax bills next year while those in South Dublin County will face no increase, it has emerged.

This is after councillors in South Dublin County Council voted to reduce the Local Property Tax there by the maximum of 15 per cent.

However, in Dún Laoghaire Rathdown councillors there failed to agree on a traditional discount of 15 per cent on Local Property Tax bills, the maximum allowed by the Government.

Because of this household bills in the area, which has some of the State’s most expensive housing, will rise by 15 per cent.

Councillors failed to come to an agreement following an appeal by Dun Laoghaire Rathdown council chief executive Philomena Poole who said the Covid-19 pandemic has had a “catastrophic” impact on finances.

She said the council was facing “disastrous cuts in front line services”.
