Revenue Asking How You Plan To Pay Property Tax

Some 960,000 people are to receive a letter from the Revenue Commissioners asking them to indicate their preferred payment method for next year's collection of the Local Property Tax.

The Revenue Commissioners' Local Property Tax Manager Vivienne Dempsey told RTÉs Morning Ireland that while the tax was not payable until January 2014, they wanted people to let them know they would be planning to pay.

Some 46% of people paid by cheque, cash, credit of debit card in 2013 and they will be expected to contact the Revenue in the coming weeks, while those making paper tax returns must select a payment option by 7 November, and those filling out tax returns online have until 27 November.
