Press Release - Tipperary County Council Decision on Local Property Tax

TTipperary County Council Decision on Local Property Tax will assure continued supports for Communities, Arts and Leisure Centres across the County. Some 30% of households are already benefitting from reductions in their LPT.

The decision by Tipperary County Council to vary the local property tax by 10% for 2023 and 2024 provides confidence to local communities, public arts and leisure centres across the county that the Council will be in a position to continue to support them for the next 2 years.

Facilities such as the Clonmel, Tipperary town, Roscrea, Thurles and Nenagh Leisure Centres, South Tipperary Arts Centre, Canon Hayes Recreation Centre and Excel Centre in Tipperary town, the Sean Kelly Centre in Carrick on Suir and others have benefitted in the past from this money and will continue to receive an allocation in 2023. At District level, decisions by the Elected Members early in the new year will see over €600,000 raised from the local property tax distributed to community groups, tidy towns associations and other worthwhile projects.

Critically, however, the Chief Executive of Tipperary County Council, Joe MacGrath, in welcoming this decision noted that "the vast majority of households will pay the same amount or less in 2023 and 2024 than they paid in 2021 with some 30% of households already benefitting from a very significant reduction in their Local Property Tax as a result of the revision of valuation bands". Overall, households in Tipperary will pay €1.7 million less in Local Property Tax in 2022 than they paid in 2021 while the amount of equalisation funding from Government to Tipperary County Council has now increased to over €15.6 m.

Every euro of the money raised as a result of this decision will be invested back into local communities and local facilities across County Tipperary and will be vital to providing them with financial support at this difficult time for all.
