The purpose of this website is to summarise details on the NPPR tax and penalty, share personal stories, and collect and spread useful information that will help people appeal their NPPR late payment penalty successfully.
The Local Government (Charges) Act 2009, as amended by the Local Government (Household Charge) Act 2011, introduced a €200 annual charge on non-principal private residences, payable by home owners to the local authority in whose area the property is located.
The late payment of the NPPR fees resulted in a penalty of €20 per month, working out as 120% per year. In August 2014, the Government increased the total penalty by 50%, resulting in a total charge of €7,230 for individuals who had missed all payments.
Due to the confusion created by the original advertising and communication of the exact nature of the tax, and the lack of direct communication to liable home owners when the tax was originally proposed, many home owners only realised their liabilities when local councils finally communicated directly with them in August 2014.
