50,000 homeowners who have not paid their property tax have been given one weeks notice to pay before Revenue begins deducting what's owed from their pension or their wages.
Reminder letters have been sent by the Revenue Commissioners today.
So far 1.58 million returns have been filed for the Local Property Tax, raising more than €175 million euro for the exchequer.
Revenue says, as there are some errors in their records some people who are not liable or who have already paid may receive a letter.
If this is the case Revenue has this advice:
- If you have received a reminder letter but have already filed your return you should contact the LPT Helpline on 1890 200 255 immediately and confirm that you have already filed a return. This could arise where the return was filed under a different name and PPS number to the property owner on Revenue’s property register or where the address used was slightly different to the address on our record. You should have your Property ID , PIN code and PPS number ready.
- If you’ve received an LPT reminder letter but are not the owner of the property, Revenue is again reminding you that you need to contact the LPT Helpline immediately with the name(s), address(es) and PPSN(s) of the liable person(s). If you don’t, we will still think you are liable, and will pursue you for the LPT in respect of the property.
Revenue is reminding property homeowners not to ignore the letter or the estimated tax due will begin to be deducted from wages or pension within 7 days.
