I am advised by the Revenue Commissioners that income tax was deducted from the pension of the person in question following the changes that I announced in Budget 2011 to the Personal, Employee (PAYE) and Aged tax credits. In addition, the person in question is now liable for deductions under the new Universal Social Charge. If the taxpayer in question wishes to contact their local Revenue Tax Office, Kilkenny District, to discuss the matter of deduction of tax on future pension payments. They should contact Ms. Phil Reid at Telephone 056 7783778 or Ms. Anne Doyle at Telephone 056 7783753.
