Tax Clearance Certificates
I am informed by the Revenue Commissioners that following receipt of updated pension figures from the Department of Social Protection, it transpires that the person in question is in receipt of a Department of Social Protection Old Age Pension with an Increase for a Qualified Adult. In the circumstances the person concerned is entitled to one PAYE Tax Credit in respect of the pension. He is not entitled to an additional PAYE Tax Credit or an additional Standard Rate Band in respect of the Qualified Adult portion of this pension. Accordingly his Tax Credit Certificate for 2012 is correct.
I am advised by the Revenue Commissioners that a claim for medical expenses of €5,384 was received from the person named for 2009 and a net refund of €177.65 issued on 14th December 2011, €88.99 to the person named and €88.66 to his spouse. In processing the refund, an apparent under deduction of PAYE for 2009 of €897.74 came to light from the P35 forms submitted by the employers. A copy of the P60s for 2009 has been requested from the person named to establish the reason for the under deduction, and should any additional refund arise, it will be duly processed.
