Bill aims to relieve homeowners who are paying Local Property Tax and management fees to deliver the same services.
Fianna Fáil used its Private Members Business time in the Dáil recently to debate its Management Fees (Local Property Tax) Relief Bill 2018 which was introduced in the Dáil last June. The Bill provides homeowners who are already paying management fees with a reduction in their Property Tax bill worth a third of the fee, up to a maximum of €300 per year. Commenting on the debate the party’s Chair of the Housing and Homelessness Committee and TD for Dublin Mid-West, John Curran said, “The Local Property Tax, which came into effect in 2013, was intended to fund services in residential developments such as maintaining public lighting, roads and paths and/or grounds keeping.
“We remain committed to ensuring there is no increase in the Local Property Tax and that a fairer, more equitable system is put in place when the review of current rate is finalised and its report published in the coming weeks,” he concluded.
