Local Property Tax (LPT)


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 Cork City 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.

Cork City Council will meet in September 2020 to consider the setting of a local adjustment


Cork City 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 24th August 2020 and be sent to:

Finance Department, Cork City Council, LPT Submissions, City Hall, Cork
