Written answers (Question to Finance)

I am advised by Revenue that it recently carried out a comprehensive review of the person’s tax situation and calculated that they overpaid their liabilities in 2019 (year to date) and in 2016, 2017 and 2018. The over payments occurred due to the incorrect allocation of tax credit entitlements.

Revenue has amended the person’s tax records for 2019 to reflect their correct entitlements and refunds for this year will issue via their employer. Revenue has also issued balancing statements in respect of the previous years and any refunds will issue directly in the coming days.
