Written answers (Question to Finance)

I am informed by Revenue that property owners who are due a refund of tax and who are currently paying their 2014 LPT liability by direct debit (over the course of 2014) are entitled to receive their tax refund, provided that the direct debits have been honoured, and that the rest of their tax affairs are in order. They are not required to pay their full 2014 LPT liability now in order to receive the refund.
