“This growing trend ties in with ongoing nationwide efforts to encourage customers and businesses to move away from cheque and cash payments,” explained Tom Gilligan, Director of Finance, Motor Tax and ICT.

“The increased use of online services has enabled the Limerick Motor Tax Department to keep waiting times at Dooradoyle and Newcastle West to a minimum during 2015. Waiting times could be further reduced by members of the public choosing to use our online tax service which is operational 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at Customers can, if they so wish, post their applications to the Motor Tax Department, Council Buildings, Dooradoyle, Limerick,” added Mr. Gilligan.
