I am advised by Revenue that the cost of increases to the earned income tax credit as requested by the Deputy can be found on page 6 of the Ready Reckoner which is available at: https://www.revenue.ie/en/corporate/documents/statistics/ready-reckoner.pdf. While some of the costs of the increases sought by the Deputy are not displayed in the Ready Reckoner, those not included can be estimated on a straight-line or pro-rata basis from the costs shown.
