The Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore says the Revenue Commissioners need to facilitate homeowners in every possible way to pay the Local Property Tax.
There has been uproar after it emerged that homeowners who want to pay the tax for 2014 by card or cheque in a single payment have to do so by the end of November this year.
Speaking to Newstalk's Political Correspondent Páraic Gallagher, Mr. Gilmore says a range of payment options are available and that Revenue need to assist homeowners.
Anyone who pays the tax in a one-off method - by cheque or debit or credit card - will have to inform revenue of this in the next week and make the payment by the end of November.
Revenue has written to nearly 1 million homeowners who had chosen this method for the 2013 tax.
Speaking earlier on his way into Cabinet, the Taoiseach Enda Kenny said there are a range of options for people.
Meanwhile, a Labour TD has called for the extension of the property tax deadline.
John Lyons, TD for Dublin North-West told Breakfast here on Newstalk there is too much confusion surrounding the payment timeframe.
