Submissions requested regarding Local Property Tax adjustment - by Friday, 10th August, 2018



The Finance (Local Property Tax) Act, 2012 (as amended), makes specific provision that Elected Members of a local authority may pass a formal resolution to vary the basic rate of the Local Property Tax for their administrative area by a percentage known as the local adjustment factor.  At the meeting set by Meath County Council to consider this matter, the Members may set a local adjustment factor within the range of +/- 15% of the basic rate, or, may decide not to adjust the basic rate.


Meath County Council will meet in September 2018 to consider the setting of a local adjustment factor.


Meath County Council welcomes written submissions from the public on this matter specifically covering the potential effects of varying the basic rate of the Local Property Tax on businesses, individuals and on local authority services.


Submissions must be received by Friday, 10th August, 2018 and can be sent via the following methods:
