The cost of increasing mortgage interest relief to 30 per cent for first-time buyers who took out their first mortgage in the period 2004 to 2008 is estimated at €52 million in a full year which was stated in the Budget 2012 Booklet. This information is available, along with all other Budget 2012 taxation measures, on my Department’s website at www.finance.gov.ie.
