CO2 Emissions Based VRT

CO2 Emissions Based VRT

Passenger Vehicles (EU Classification M1)

For Passenger Vehicles, VRT is based on the CO2 emissions from the car. Linking the VRT rates to CO2 emission levels means that those purchasing cleaner, low emission cars pay less VRT while those opting to purchase higher emitting vehicles pay more.

Motor Tax

The Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government also charges annual Motor Tax for Passenger Vehicles based on their CO2 emissions. Their website can be found at: www.environ.ieExternal link
