I am advised by the Revenue Commissioners that a claim for tax relief on medical expenses, incurred by the person in question during 2009 was received on 18 March 2010. In a letter to the taxpayer on 23 March 2010, the Revenue Commissioners sought further details in order to process the claim. To date, no reply to this letter has been received.
However, the position is that the person is taxed under joint assessment with their spouse for 2009. Their joint tax affairs for 2009 have now been reviewed without including the claim for medical expenses. An overpayment of €499.65 arises in respect of the person's spouse. This amount will transfer to their bank account within 5 working days. This represents all the tax deducted in relation to both taxpayers in 2009. Consequently, there is no need for the taxpayer to reply to the letter dated 23 March 2010 as there is no further refund due.
