I am advised by Revenue that the issue in this case has been resolved and the person’s application for tax relief under the Scheme for Persons with Disabilities has been approved. The refund payment will issue to the person within the next five to seven working days. 

The delay in approving the person’s application occurred because the PPS number provided was no longer valid. However, Revenue immediately processed and approved the application once the person’s new PPS number was confirmed.
