Irish taxman collars 16 dead taxpayers

Estates of 16 dead people pay out to settle with the Irish taxman

The Irish taxman won payouts worth a total of one million euros (£800,000)
from the estates of 16 dead people last year.

The payouts were made before rules changed so settlements could only be made
prior to the taxpayer’s death.

The 16 payouts were made as part of 14,300 audits undertaken by the Revenue
Commissioners, reported the Irish Independent.

Fine Gael’s Michael Ring said penalties issued prior to March should be
reimbursed.

‘In many cases, it’s poor, unfortunate widows who have suffered from the old
system. It has caused major stress for many women who had to find ways of
reaching a settlement with the taxman,’ Ring said. ‘Some were simply unable to
pay the penalties.’
