Anyone in financial difficulty and not paid NPPR tax should contact Council

hometaxAnyone who hasn't paid their second home tax will have to pay double what they owe if they do not pay by Sunday.

The Non-Principal Private Residence payment was brought in five years ago to target landords and holiday home owners - but it's now been replaced by the general property tax.

Anyone who misses this Sunday nights deadline will have to fork up to seven thousand Euro, which is almost double the original charge.

Any queries relating to the NPPR charge in Donegal can be emailed to
