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 a meeting to be held by Kilkenny County Council to consider the 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.
Kilkenny County Council will meet in September 2015 to consider the setting of a local adjustment factor.
Kilkenny 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 Monday 10th August, 2015 and be sent to: Head of Finance, Kilkenny County Council, County Hall, John Street, Kilkenny or email@example.com.
