Local Property Tax - what you need to do for 2022

Overview

Your property is liable for Local Property Tax (LPT) for 2022 if it is a residential property on the valuation date of 1 November 2021.

LPT is a self-assessed tax. This means that you need to self-assess the value of your property at 1 November 2021. The valuation of your property on this date will determine the amount of LPT you pay for 2022 and for the three years from 2023 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 on who is considered liable for LPT has been provided on this website.

What you need to do for 2022

To meet your LPT obligations for 2022, you need to do three things:

  • submit your LPT Return, including your valuation, by 7 November 2021
  • and
  • pay or make arrangements to pay your LPT charge for 2022.

Revenue will issue you with a letter (through MyAccount, Revenue Online Service (ROS) or the post) in advance of the valuation date of 1 November 2021. Your Property ID and PIN will be included and these are also shown on any previous LPT correspondence you may have received from Revenue.
