What's supposed to happen next?

Q I received a letter from Revenue, what do I do now?

You must decide how you want to pay your property tax for 2014 – either in one lump sum or by a series of weekly or monthly instalments.

If paying in one lump sum using a cheque, postal order, credit or debit card, the amount will be deducted from your bank account immediately.

You can also pay it all in one go by setting up a special direct debit so that the money is taken from your bank account by Revenue on March 21, 2014.

You can also spread your payments evenly throughout 2014 by a direct debit from your bank account or by having it deducted from your salary, pension, social welfare or single farm payment.

Q When do I have to decide?

If paying by cheque or postal order, you have to send it in to Revenue with the form by November 7.

If paying online, you have until November 27 to let Revenue know how you are paying it.

Q Why didn't I receive a letter?

Revenue only wrote to those people who paid their 2013 property tax in one lump sum or who paid in instalments using cash.

If you paid the tax through a deduction from your salary, pension, social welfare payment or in instalments via direct debit, or deferred paying the tax, then you will pay the 2014 tax in the same way.

You can still change how you pay the tax for 2014 by going online, but you will need your Property ID, PIN and PPS number in order to do so.

The deadline for doing this is November 27.
