Self-employed? Revenue has given you more time to pay your tax bill thanks to Storm Ophelia
Online filers will now get over two weeks extra to pay their taxes.

REVENUE HAS EXTENDED the pay and file deadline for self-employed people following Storm Ophelia.

The deadline for online filers, which originally was 14 November, is now 16 November. However, those who file using paper, must still submit their returns by the end of this month.

A statement from Revenue said it was aware that the storm had knocked many people offline for an extended period of time and said it had taken the unforeseen circumstances into account.

It read: “Revenue is very aware of the difficulties that affected many households and businesses as a result of the recent storms and is conscious that this may have impacted on preparations to meet the upcoming online Pay and File deadline.

In order to assist customers and practitioners impacted by power outages, Revenue has advised that the deadline to Pay and File online has been extended to midnight on Thursday 16 November.

“The helpdesks will be open until 8pm on the nights leading up to the new deadline, and will remain open until midnight on 16 November, to assist with filing returns and making payments right up to the deadline.

“The deadline for paper filers is 31 October 2017 and this remains unchanged.”
