I am advised by the Revenue Commissioners that the person (details supplied) did not receive a tax refund in 2003 but the refund in question may relate to a repayment of tax which she received in September 2006 in respect of the year 2005.  

A repayment of €7,740 issued to the person in September 2006, based on information which she supplied to Revenue.  It was subsequently discovered that credit had been granted for an amount of tax which had not been paid by the person for the year in question.  Revenue was in correspondence with the person in July and August 2013 and an arrangement was agreed between the parties whereby the underpayment of tax would be collected over a four year period. 

However, the Revenue Commissioners will review the case and Mr Gerry Greene at Revenue's  Office in Michael Davitt House, Castlebar  (telephone 094 9037039) will contact the person concerned shortly.
