NOTICE OF CONSIDERATION OF SETTING A
LOCAL ADJUSTMENT FACTOR
NOTICE OF CONSIDERATION OF SETTING A LOCAL ADJUSTMENT FACTOR - Meath County Council will meet in September 2016 to consider the setting of a local adjustment factor.
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 Meath County Council to consider this matter, the Members may set a local adjustment factor within the range of +/- 15% of the basic rate, or, may decide not to adjust the basic rate.
Meath County Council will meet in September 2016 to consider the setting of a local adjustment factor.
