Finance (Local Property Tax) (Amendment) Bill 2013

I thank the Minister of State, Deputy Fergus O'Dowd, for his presence. A number of key issues raised during the debate on the original Bill are being written into this legislation, mainly in regard to exemptions for the most vulnerable, deferrals for low income households and a reduction of rates for local authorities. I welcome these as improvements to the original Bill introduced last year.

Finance Bill (Property Tax) (Amendment) Bill 2013

I would like to acknowledge the complex task of establishing a new tax base, one that is sustainable, and one that does not affect our competitiveness and job creation. This particular tax base, in its nature is open to various anomalies, interpretations and exemptions. It requires a substantial amount of logistical and legal expertise that has evidently been applied to both this Bill and the tax as a whole, while at the same time ensuring it is fit for its purpose, which is to fund local services.
