Finance (Local Property Tax) (Amendment) Bill 2021: Committee and Remaining Stages
Aisling Dolan (Fine Gael)
I welcome the Minister here today. It is great to have him in the House, especially on our last day of session. I will speak very briefly on this amendment. I welcome this particular LPT Bill coming before us, especially for the county of Galway, as we are going to be able to have a little bit more income coming in, including from the backdating of those residences. It will be fantastic to get investment coming into our local authority.
I refer to the bands and banding and the properties that are being included.The bands for the properties that are included date back several years. Will the rates we are considering impact the local authorities? The impact of the new bands and the different rates according to the bands should be positive for the local authorities.
