The Finance (Local Property Tax) Act 2012 (as amended and regulations made there under), 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 the meeting set by Leitrim County Council to consider this 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.

Leitrim County Council will meet in September 2022 to consider the setting of a local adjustment factor.

Leitrim 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 4pm on Wednesday17th August 2022 and may be sent in writing addressed to: Head of Finance, Leitrim County Council, Aras An Chontae, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. LeitrimN41 PF67 or email:
