 129.  Deputy Terence Flanagan Information on Terence Flanagan Zoom on Terence Flanagan  asked the Minister for Finance Information on Michael Noonan Zoom on Michael Noonan  the position regarding a PAYE allowance in respect of a person (details supplied); and if he will make a statement on the matter. [6586/12]

Minister for Finance (Deputy Michael Noonan): Information on Michael Noonan Zoom on Michael Noonan I am informed by the Revenue Commissioners that, according to Revenue records the person in question was granted one PAYE Credit for the years 2006-2011.

On the 10 January 2012, the taxpayer advised Revenue that his spouse had a pension in her own right and he was granted an additional PAYE Credit for the year 2012. However, following further contact from the taxpayer when he was making a claim for the additional PAYE Credit for 2011, it transpired that his spouse did not have a pension in her own right but was in fact receiving the Adult Dependent portion of his pension. In such circumstances he was not entitled to the additional PAYE Credit and the credit was withdrawn for 2012.
