Revenue "happy" with property tax payments after deadline passes

The deadline for filing the paper returns fell yesterday – but the online payment system remains open until 28 May.

REVENUE HAS SAID it is happy with the level of response to property tax payments, as the postal deadline for filing paper returns passed yesterday.

It is estimated that so far 500,000 people have paid the tax – but an updated number will be known towards the end of this week.

A spokesperson said that they were “happy with the level of interest” given that three weeks remain until the online payment deadline of 28 May.

Yesterday, users reported issues using the online service for paying the tax. It transpired this was due to a scheduled system maintenance that took longer than expected to implement.

A spokesperson said today there should be no further problems with the site due to this now completed maintenance.

If people do not pay the tax by 1 July, Revenue will deduct it from source, by mandatory deduction from employment income, pensions, certain government payment or even from bank accounts if people do not comply.
