Deputy Thomas Pringle has moved to clarify a point on local property tax forms which he says seems to be causing confusion for people.
Deputy Pringle said: “My offices have heard from a number of constituents in recent days who raised concerns about local property tax forms they received recently.
“In the forms, Revenue is asking people to use Revenue’s online property valuation tool and to add the band number the online tool generates to their payment form.
“People are not being asked to get their property valued separately by an outside source,” the deputy said.
He said he wanted to clarify the point because people had contacted his office believing they had to seek an outside valuation of their property, which can be costly.

Deputy Pringle said that people who were seeking assistance with the forms can contact his constituency offices in Killybegs, Ballybofey or Dungloe.
