Written answers (Question to Finance)

I am advised by Revenue that according to its records the person in question opted to pay his 2016 Local Property Tax (LPT) liability using the Payment Service Provider (PSP) method.

On foot of the Deputy's Question, Revenue made direct contact with the person who confirmed that he selected the PSP option in error and wished to meet his 2016 LPT liability via weekly deductions from his Department of Social Protection (DSP) pension payment.

The Revenue official explained to the person that the payment would be deducted in equal amounts over the remaining payment periods available over the course of the year. The person was satisfied with the arrangement and the Revenue official assisted him in setting up the required mandate.

Revenue has confirmed that the issue is now resolved to the person's satisfaction.
