Around 1,000 of Kerry’s registered properties are valued at over €300,000 for Local Property Tax.
5,000 properties are worth between €200,000 and €300,000, while the bulk of properties are worth less than €200,000.
A total of 62,400 properties have been registered for Local Property Tax in the county.
Today’s Irish Independent says a report commissioned by Finance Minister Michael Noonan warns homeowners could be hit with steep hikes due to rising property values.
But yesterday’s budget froze current LPT values until 2019.
