Kilkenny County Council has advised that making contact with their offices or the Non Principal Private Residence (NPPR) Bureau by e-mail before the deadline can freeze any additional penalties that might otherwise come into effect on September 1.
The six month period during which further NPPR late penalties cease to accumulate in respect of non compliant properties is due to expire at midnight on Sunday, August 31. Persons wishing to settle their liability can still do so online at www.nppr.ie
Significant numbers have paid the NPPR liability since the 1st March and many more payments are being processed at present. Kilkenny County Council is aware that many more people want to settle their NPPR liabilities before the expiry of the deadline on 31st August.
Some people may need to clarify aspects of the liability and as a consequence significant numbers of people are making contact by telephone to our offices. Due to the huge increase in the numbers calling our offices, not all callers will get through and we apologies for this inconvenience.
Any person who wishes to settle their NPPR liability and cannot get through to our offices by telephone can have further late penalties frozen by making contact with either the National Bureau by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by making contact with Kilkenny Local Authority by e-mail (email@example.com) before the expiry of the deadline on 31st August indicating the property for which they want to settle the NPPR liability and giving their contact details.
Any person who doesn’t have access to e-mail may correspond in writing with us at County Hall, John St, Kilkenny City by the deadline of August 31. Staff dealing with the NPPR liability will make contact as soon as possible after 1st September to make the arrangements for settling the liability. Kilkenny County Council will deal with all cases presented to them on an individual basis taking into account the circumstances of the property owner.
