Report: Implementation of Site Value Tax in Ireland

This report aims to provide policymakers with guidance on the implementation of Site Value Tax (SVT) in Ireland, assessing actual and possible obstacles, and providing solutions. It is divided by issues facing implementation, with specific Smart Taxes policy proposals in boxes.

The report is based on a workshop held by the Urban Forum on the implementation of the Site Value Tax proposed in the Programme for Government in collaboration with the Smart Taxes Network. A number of papers were commissioned and shared with the participants and further presentations were held on the day. Participants came from a wide range of decision-making positions in the public and private sectors.

This report drew from the international expertise of property and taxation specialists, with supporting analysis from experts in land surveying and documents. Cited documents can be accessed on this website.

Appendices cover important relevant areas that were not discussed at the workshop but were contributed later by Smart Tax Network members.
