The latest list of tax defaulters published by Revenue provides details of 65 taxpayers who have made settlements totalling almost €13m.
Revenue has published the list of tax defaulters up to September 30, 2018.
The list published in Iris Oifigiúil, is in two parts:
Part 1 deals with persons in whose case the Court has determined a penalty relating to a settlement, or has imposed a fine, imprisonment or another penalty in respect of a tax or duty offence.
Part 2 is that of persons in whose case Revenue has accepted a settlement offer instead of initiating court proceedings or a settlement has been paid in full.
The list reflects the amount of a settlement that remained unpaid at the end of the September 30, 2018 period.
Court Determination of Penalty:
Subject to certain criteria, in settlement cases where a person does not agree liability to a penalty, or fails to pay an agreed penalty, the Court determines the penalty.
Details are published when the Court determined penalty exceeds 15% of the total tax and the total of the tax, interest and penalty is more than €35,000 and a qualifying disclosure has not been made:
Such cases are published and €20,051.69 is the total amount of the Court determined penalties.
Court imposed fine, imprisonment or other penalty:
Details are published when a fine or other Court penalty is imposed in respect of tax or duty offences. Court penalties may include imprisonment, partly suspended or suspended sentences, community service in lieu of imprisonment, and closure orders.
148 such cases are published and €380,703 is the total of court fines imposed.
These cases include:
