Written answers (Question to Finance)

I am advised by Revenue that it recently made direct contact with the person in question and also issued a written response to the queries raised.

Revenue also confirmed, that it clarified to the person that it cannot grant the tax credit in question where a medical practitioner does not confirm that there is reasonable expectation that the patient will not be capable of maintaining himself or herself after the age of 18.

Revenue also advised the person on how to seek a review of the decision made and/or appeal it to the independent Tax Appeals Commission.
