Local Property Tax - what you need to do for 2022
Your property is liable for Local Property Tax (LPT) for 2022 if it is a residential property.
LPT is a self-assessed tax. The valuation date is 1 November 2021. You need to self-assess the value of your property as at 1 November 2021. The valuation of your property on this date will apply for the four-year period from 2022 to 2025. It determines the amount of LPT you pay each year for 2022 to 2025.
Revenue has provided an interactive tool and information on this website to help you determine the value of your property and meet your LPT obligations.
How to check if you are liable for LPT for 2022
If you are the owner of a residential property on 1 November 2021, then you are liable for LPT for 2022 for that property. You are liable for LPT even if you do not usually live in the property.
Your property may not have been liable for LPT for the previous valuation period from 2013 to 2021, for example, if your house was built after 2013. However, your property becomes liable for LPT for the next valuation period from 2022 to 2025, as long as it is a residential property on 1 November 2021.
You are still liable for LPT for 2022 even if you sell the property after 1 November 2021. More information is available on who is considered liable for LPT.
