The Government has introduced a Residential Zoned Land Tax, a new tax aimed at increasing housing supply by activating zoned, serviced residential lands (including mixed-use lands) for housing. Homes that are subject to the Local Property Tax are not liable for the Residential Zoned Land Tax. However, residential properties larger than 0.4047 (1 acre), are not subject to the RZLT but must register with the Revenue Commissioners.
A Draft Map showing lands that will be subject to the Residential Zoned Land Tax in Galway City is available to view here
Landowners and third parties can make a submission about whether lands on the Draft Map meet the criteria for being subject to the tax. The deadline for submissions is 01 January 2023.
