The 2013 Irish budget was the Irish Government budget for the 2013 fiscal year, presented to Dáil Éireann on 5 December 2012.[1] It was the second budget of the 31st Dáil.[2]

The budget saw the introduction of the Local Property Tax at rates of 0.18% per annum and 0.25% per annum.[3][4] Child benefit will be cut by €10 a month with €61m cuts in other household benefits. College fees will also rise in the next year by €250 a student while motor tax will also increase. A packet of 20 cigarettes increases by 10 cent while excise duty on a pint or beer or cider will increase by 10 cent, on a standard measure of spirits by 10 cent, and on a bottle of wine by €1.[5]

On 13 December 2012, Labour Party TD Colm Keaveney voted against the government on cuts to the respite care grant leading to his loss of the Parliamentary Labour Party whip.[6]
