€200 Charge for certain Residential Property
The Local Government (Charges) Act 2009 introduced a €200 annual charge for the owners of non principal private residences. The charge applies mainly to owners of private rental property and holiday homes. It also applies to vacant residential property unless newly built but unsold.
Liability to pay the charge is assessed by owners themselves. Ownership of a non principal private residence on the "liability date" determines liability to pay the €200 charge. The liability date for 2012 is 31st March.
Payment is due by 30th June. A €20 per month, per property, late payment fee will apply from 1st July in respect of each month for which payment is overdue.
Payment of the charge can be made:
(1) on-line at www.nppr.ie
(2) at the Cash Office of Kilkenny County Council, County Hall,
John Street, Kilkenny
(3) by posting the registration form and payment to NPPR, PO Box 11654, Dublin 8.
