Taoiseach Enda Kenny says homeowners are not obliged to pay the 2013 property tax until 2014.

Mr Kenny said nobody in the county has a legal obligation or any other obligation to pay the 2013 property tax.

He said there were seven different options for payment in 2014.

"Nobody has to pay the 2014 property tax charge until 2014," he said.

Fianna Fáil leader Micheal Martin said there was incoherence in the Government over the property tax and claimed the Tanaiste didn't understand how the property tax works.

Mr Martin said the property tax controversy could impact on the fragile economy.

Independent TD Michael Healy-Rae said the Government was making a "scapegoat" of the Revenue.

But Mr Kenny said this was an "insult" and should be withdrawn.
