THE REVENUE COMMISSIONERS has released a sample of the letter it will be sending out to homeowners who are liable for the property tax but haven’t paid it.

The letter is likely to be sent out in the coming days to those who did not file their return on time last month and will advise homeowners that they face deductions from their salaries – with their employer notified of their non-compliance – if they do not file their return.

Initial figures indicate there was a high rate of compliance with the new tax while Exchequer Returns released this week showed that €121 million had been collected so far.

The government is targeting a total take of €250 million from the tax this year.
