I am advised by the Revenue Commissioners that the available historical data on the distribution of incomes by income ranges has been published for the tax years 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 in their Statistical Reports for 2009, 2010 and 2011 respectively and is available on the Revenue website at www.revenue.ie. The data is available in tables IDS1 to IDS 18 of the Income Distribution Statistics section of those reports.

In addition, using projected income levels and numbers of income earners, the Revenue Commissioners have updated their incomes data for the income tax years 2011 and 2012 years using an income tax model maintained for the purpose of estimating the Exchequer effect of budgetary changes to the income tax system. This data is provisional and likely to be revised. On this basis the tabulated information for income tax years 2011 and 2012 is as set out in the following tables.

It should be noted that the income ranges shown in the above table relate to Gross Income as defined in Revenue Statistical Reports.

The figures are estimates from the Revenue tax-forecasting model using actual data for the year 2010 adjusted as necessary for income and employment trends in the interim. These are, therefore, provisional and likely to be revised.

It should also be noted that a married couple which has elected or has been deemed to have elected joint assessment is counted as one tax unit.
