Social Welfare Bill 2019: Financial Resolution

I move:

THAT the Taxes Consolidation Act 1997 (No. 39 of 1997) be amended in the manner and to the extent specified in the Act giving effect to this Resolution to provide for the deeming of amounts to be paid on foot of jobseeker’s benefit (self-employed) under the Social Welfare Acts to be deemed to be earned income for the purpose of the Taxes Consolidation Act 1997 and subject to taxation in accordance with Section 126 of that Act.”

Question put and agreed to.
