Local Property Tax 2023 - Setting a Local Adjustment Factor

Notice of Consideration of Setting a Local Adjustment Factor (increase or decrease or leaving unaltered Local Property Tax Rate)

The Finance(Local Property Tax) Act 2012 (as amended), makes specific provision that elected members of a local authority may pass a formal resolution to vary the basic rate of the Local Property Tax for their administrative area by a percentage known as the local adjustment
factor. At the meeting set by Wicklow County Council to consider this matter, the members may set a local adjustment factor within the range of +/- 15% of the basic rate, or, may decide, not to adjust the basic rate.

Wicklow County Council will meet on Monday 10th October 2022 to consider the setting of a local adjustment factor.

Wicklow County Council welcomes written submissions from the public on this matter specifically covering the potential effects of varying the basic rate of the Local
Property Tax on businesses, individuals and on local authority services.

Submissions must be received by the 23rd September 2022 and may be made using one of the following methods:
