Revenue Commission Chairman, Frank Daly on Friday thanked practitioners for their continued use of the Revenue On-Line Service (ROS) during the recent Pay and File campaign.

He stated that Revenue is encouraged by the increases in timely filing and payment of taxes.

By midnight on 16th November, the tax deadline for electronic filers, a total of 244,114 income tax returns were filed through ROS. Over 86,000 payments were made online this year (an increase of 29% over last year).

Early indications suggest that over 70% of timely filers used the electronic route this year. This compares very favourably with the 65% achieved last year and 53%; 40% and 9% in the preceding years.

Online payment of tax also increased this year, with over EUR2.2 billion paid this year compared to EUR1.4b at the same time last year.

A record number of returns (over 30,000) were successfully filed on the last day.
