Final two weeks to avoid €3,000 penalty for NPPR property owners

Clare County Council is urging property owners to avoid additional penalties of up to €3,010 per property by regularising their NPPR liability in the next two weeks. 2014-08-13 13:27:17
Introduced as part of the Government's Local Government (Charges) Act 2009, the annual NPPR charge applies to each year during the period from 2009 to 2013. In order to maximise compliance and encourage payment of outstanding NPPR charge arrears, section 74 of the Local Government Reform Act 2014 provides for a period, from 2nd March 2014 to 31st August 2014, during which time no new late payment penalties will be applied to existing NPPR liabilities.

A Council spokesperson urged that anyone in doubt regarding their obligations should make immediate contact with their County or City Council as the punitive penalties will be automatically applied from 1st September, 2014.

The Council also confirmed that Local Property Tax data provided by the Revenue Commissioners is being used to identify non compliant property owners.

The spokesperson stressed that it is in these owners own interest to declare their property this month as from 1st September, they face a charge of up to €7,230 per property.

"While the NPPR is a self declaration charge the Council is anxious that property owners avoid any further unnecessary penalties being applied," the spokesperson added.

Persons in doubt about the liability of their property should contact Clare County Council, New Road, Ennis, Co. Clare, at 065 6821616 or Further information also is available from the website where the charge can be paid or registration forms downloaded.
