Property Tax, Income Tax & Carbon Tax


Tax On Non Principal Private Residence
The Local Government (Charges) Act 2009 introduced a €200 annual charge on non principal private residences, payable by the owners to the local authority in whose area the property concerned is located. Liability for 2010 is assessed on the owner at 31st March 2010 (‘liability date’), with the due date of payment being 30th June.

There is no escape from the property tax:
Revenue have access to ESB records and the Private Residential Tenancies Board records to compile a list of landlords assessable
There is a fine for late payment of the tax – the 2010 charge increases by €20 monthly if not paid by 30th June. Unpaid 2009 charges have been accumulating at €20 monthly since 1st November 2009.
Payment can be made online or by cheque/draft/postal order.

Income Tax 2009
The deadline for filing your return is 31 October 2010, however if you believe that you will be in a refund position then you should file now to secure your repayment. Contact us for further details.

In addition, the college grant scheme requires that for the academic year 2010 – 2011, applications must be accompanied by notice of assessments for the tax year 2009 in support of the level of income of the applicant/their parents.
