€51.9 million in commercial rates were collected in Kildare last year - which is 83% of the total levied.
There were only a handful of other local authorities around the country with collection rates below Kildare.
KCC, however, recorded a rates surplus of €170,424 in that year.
Nationally, commercial rates raised over €1.4 billion.
Rates collections have been suspended since March, because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
