Deputy John Deasy asked the Minister for Finance the revenue that will be generated by the property tax in each county and the overall amount projected throughout the country.
Written reply received from Deputy Michael Noonan: According to Budget estimates the Local Property Tax is expected to generate an overall yield of €250 million in 2013 and €500 million in 2014. I am advised by the Revenue Commissioners that it is not possible to provide a breakdown of these estimates on a county basis until Local Property Tax returns are filed and payments made by liable persons.
