Dublin city councillors have been urged to increase the local property tax by 15 per cent, to bring in 24 million euro in additional funds.
The local authority has warned it's facing a deficit of 39 million euro next year, caused by the pandemic.
The council says it's lost out on revenue from the likes of planning fees and parking charges and has had additional costs for the likes of Dublin Fire Brigade and homeless services.
Councillors have in recent years voted to reduce the tax by 15 per cent.
