Notice of Consideration of Setting a Local Adjustment Factor

Jul 20, 2017

The Finance (Local Property Tax) Act 2012 (as amended), makes specific provision that elected members of a local authority may pass a formal resolution to vary the basic rate of the Local Property Tax for their administrative area by a percentage known as the local adjustment factor. At the meeting set by Galway City Council to consider this matter, the members may set a local adjustment factor within the range +/- 15% of the basic rate, or, may decide not to adjust the basic rate.

Galway City Council will meet in September 2017 to consider the setting of a local adjustment factor.

Galway City Council welcomes written submissions from the public on this matter specifically covering the potential effects of varying the basic rate of the Local Property Tax on businesses, individuals and on local authority services.

Submissions must be received by 5pm on Friday 18th August 2017 and be sent to:

Local Property Tax Submissions
Finance Department
Galway City Council
City Hall
College Road
