Exemptions – Certain properties will be exempt from LPT. These exemptions largely correspond to exemptions from the Household Charge. Exemptions will also apply to new and previously unused properties purchased from a builder or developer between 2013 and 2016, and to second-hand properties purchased in 2013 by a first time buyer.
Deferrals – A system of deferral arrangements for owner-occupiers will be implemented to address cases where there is an inability to pay the LPT under specified conditions (e.g. where the gross income does not exceed €15,000 – single and €25,000 -couple ). Some owner occupiers may be eligible to apply for marginal relief, which will allow them do defer up to 50% of their LPT liability. It should be noted that interest will be charged on deferred amounts at a rate of 4% per annum.
