Written answers (Question to Finance)

I am advised by Revenue that it has recently reviewed the tax affairs of the persons in question to ensure they have received their full tax credit entitlements.

The review identified some underpayments of tax, which Revenue has agreed to collect over an extended number of years to minimise the financial burden on the persons. Revenue has also confirmed that it has been in direct contact with the persons to explain how the underpayments occurred and to clarify how the amounts involved would be collected.
