The system will use voice recognition software and could be introduced as early as 2004. The news comes together with the launch of a pilot scheme for a simplified four-page tax return for people with straightforward tax affairs to go ahead next month.

Chas Roy-Chowdhury, head of taxation at the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, said telephone filing could be an example of the Revenue trying to achieve too much too soon.
