Department of Housing, Planning, and Local Government
I understand that the question relates to the consideration of a vacant property tax.
Housing for All provides a key pathway to addressing vacancy and efficient use of stock dedicated solely to this priority area supported by actions to enable a sustainable housing system. Among the actions is the work underway by the Department of Finance, which is the responsibility of my colleague, the Minister for Finance, to assess the present vacancy situation through the recent Local Property Tax returns with a view to introducing a vacant property tax.
