495. To ask the Minister for Housing, Planning, and Local Government the date the non-principal private residence charge was introduced; the effective date for the charge for each year; the amounts now payable in respect of each year while the charge was in existence in circumstances in which persons have not paid such a charge to date; the amount now due by an individual in such cases; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [20511/19]
The Local Government (Charges) Act 2009, as amended, provides the legislative basis for the Non-Principal Private Residence (NPPR) charge. The Act was signed into law on 21 July 2009. The NPPR charge applied in the years 2009 to 2013 to any residential property in which the owner did not reside as their normal place of residence.
There were five liability dates - 31 July 2009 and 31 March for each of the years 2010 to 2013.
The amounts payable per year by an individual that is liable to but has not paid the charge is set out in the table below. If a liable person has not paid the charge to date, the total amount now due would be €7,230.
