Questions (127)

Pearse Doherty

Question:

127. Deputy Pearse Doherty asked the Minister for Finance the revenue that would be raised for the Exchequer if personal rather than employee tax credits were phased out for income earners over €100,000, with €1 in tax credits being lost for every €2 earned; the impact this would have on income earners' average tax take, using categories €100,001-€150,000, €150,001-€200,000 and €200,001+ per annum, within the existing rate; if a new 48% band applied to the income in excess of €100,000, what the effective tax rate increase would be for income earners in those categories; and if he will state the existing effective tax rates.
