Deferral of Local Property Tax payment
Personal representative of a deceased liable person
Personal representatives of a deceased liable person may apply for a deferral of Local Property Tax (LPT). This deferral includes any LPT:
- outstanding at the date of death
- already deferred by the deceased person
- payable after the date of death.
You can identify the amount of LPT outstanding at the date of death by accessing the online LPT account for the deceased person.
To qualify for deferral, the deceased person should have been the sole owner of the property. However, it is not a requirement that the property was their main or only residence.
Details and examples are contained within Guidelines for deferral or part of deferral of payment of LPT.
Personal representatives of a deceased liable person may apply for a deferral until the earlier of the following:
- the date on which the property is transferred or sold
- three years after the date of death (Revenue may consider an extension in certain circumstances).
Outstanding LPT liabilities, and any interest due, become payable on the date that applies above.
