Schedule B.

30.—The Schedule referred to in this Act as Schedule B is as follows:—

1. Tax under this Schedule shall be charged in respect of the occupation of all lands, tenements and hereditaments in the State chargeable to tax under Schedule A, except—

(a) any dwelling-house, or the domestic offices thereunto belonging, unless occupied, by virtue of one and the same demise, together with a farm of lands, or with a farm of tithes, for the purpose of farming the same; or

(b) any warehouse or other building occupied for the purpose of carrying on a trade or profession.

2. Tax under this Schedule shall be charged for every twenty shillings of the assessable value of the lands, tenements or hereditaments concerned.

In this Act “assessable value” means in relation to tax under this Schedule an amount equal to the annual value of the lands, tenements and hereditaments, or, in any case in which it is proved to the satisfaction of the Special Commissioners that any person occupying any lands and assessed to tax in respect thereof is not occupying those lands for the purpose of husbandry only, or mainly for those purposes, and the Minister for Agriculture and Fisheries on a reference to him by the Revenue Commissioners does not certify that the use of the lands by the occupier thereof for a purpose other than the purpose of husbandry is unreasonable, an amount equal to one-third of the annual value.

3. The tax to be charged under this Schedule shall be in addition to the tax to be charged under Schedule A.
