The Revenue has been forced to hire an extra 700 staff to deal with the flood of calls, following the introduction of the new tax credits system, which started this month.
Taxpayers should have been paid by the 7 April, but the Revenue has confirmed that up to 300,000 people were still waiting for money under the new tax credit scheme.
Primarolo said all who were still waiting for their money should receive it by the end of the week.
‘I can’t put my hand on my heart and say the system worked 100% right from the word go,’ Primarolo told the BBC’s Radio Four yesterday.
