THE REVENUE COMMISSIONERS have extended the deadline for paying the property tax online until tomorrow evening due to the unprecedented volume of calls to the helpline.

The original deadline was due to be at midnight tonight, but it has now been extended until 8pm on Wednesday.

In a statement this evening, Revenue said that around 10,000 people are paying the charge per hour, while the helpline has received approximately 30,000 calls today alone from homeowners looking for information and help with their payment.

A total of 1.45 million returns have been filed as of 5.30pm today.

The Revenue Commissioners said they were “very happy” with the level of engagement from the public, describing it as “a testament  to the strong voluntary compliance culture of the people of Ireland”.
