I am advised by the Revenue Commissioners that correspondence was received from the taxpayer by Revenue in March 2013, requesting issue of a Tax Credit Certificate to the taxpayer's then employer. When the certificate issued the taxpayer's employment had ceased. In May 2013 further correspondence was received by Revenue from the taxpayer requesting a transfer of details relating to the ceased employment to the current employer. This request was processed in June 2013. Revenue has no record of any subsequent contact from the taxpayer.

To determine if any refund is due, a review of the taxpayer's 2013 PAYE taxes is required. Revenue have now written directly to the taxpayer, requesting the information necessary to update Revenue records and carry out that review.  A review of 2013 liability will issue promptly on receipt of reply.
