ROBERT MIZZELL, ONE of Ireland’s most popular Country and Western stars, was among more than 100 taxpayers to reach a settlement with the Revenue Commissioners since April.

The singer, originally from Louisiana but now with an address in Mullingar Co Westmeath, paid the state a total of €60,000.

According to the list of tax defaulters published today, Revenue took in a total of €31.85 million from settlements in the second quarter of 2014, between April and June.

The biggest single settlement agreed was by a retired Northern Irish businessman who ended up shelling out more than €13.5 million.

Anthony Cafferky of Lisnarick Road, Irvinestown, Co Fermanagh, listed as a retired company director, made the settlement after a Bogus Non-resident Account and Offshore Assets investigation.

Of the 117 cases, four related to such investigations.

Some 59 cases published today were for amounts over €100,000, and six exceeded €500,000.
