No date yet for return of Revenue website

A spokesman dismissed as speculation, reports in the FT which said the site, which has been down since the end of last month, would be back up this week.

‘We cannot say any definite time,’ he said.

But he added: ‘The problems have been sorted and it should be back on track soon.’

The Revenue’s online self assessment site was closed down after confidential details about taxpayers’ records were found to be viewable on the website.

The website is used by an estimated 75,000 people.
