I propose to take Questions Nos. 73 and 74 together.

I am advised by Revenue that net receipts for Deposit Interest Retention Tax (DIRT) and Life Assurance Exit Tax (LAET) in 2017 are published in Table 2 of Revenue’s Annual Report for 2017, available at https://www.revenue.ie/en/corporate/press-office/annual-report/2017/ar-2017.pdf.

My Department has forecast DIRT receipts for 2018 to be in the region of €117 million. Revenue have advised that LAET is expected to yield an estimated €180 million in 2018.
