Each property has a Rateable Valuation which is assessed by the Valuation Office in Dublin. This valuation remains unchanged unless there is a material change in circumstances.
The elected council members set an Annual Rate on Valuation at their budget meeting each year. ARV for 2018 is 74.98.
The rate bill is calculated by multiplying the Rateable Valuation by the Annual Rate on Valuation.
If you feel that there has been a material change in circumstances which would result in a revision of your rateable valuation you may apply to the Valuation Office in Dublin. The fee for this is €250 per account.
Full details are available from the valuation office by e-mail: email@example.com
