Minister for Social Protection Joan Burton has said the Revenue Commissioners will have to communicate better in relation to the options available to people for paying the Local Property Tax.

Speaking on RTÉ's The Week in Politics, Ms Burton repeated that people have the choice to pay the tax next year.

However, she said the letter sent to homeowners by Revenue was very "technical" and did not make this clear enough.
