A decision to write to Minister Phil Hogan in an effort to address the level of responsibility that local authorities have with regard to the payment of property tax, was taken by members of Longford Co Council during last week’s monthly meeting.

The move was made after councillors learned that all property under the local authority’s remit was liable for property tax and that ‘special needs’ housing was the subject of futher dicussion with Revenue in an effort to have that type of accommodation exempted from the new tax. See next week’s Longford Leader for more details.
