 160.  Deputy Finian McGrath Information on Finian McGrath Zoom on Finian McGrath  asked the Minister for Finance Information on Michael Noonan Zoom on Michael Noonan  the position regarding tax in respect of a person (details supplied) in Dublin 9. [23715/12]

Minister for Finance (Deputy Michael Noonan): Information on Michael Noonan Zoom on Michael Noonan I have been advised by the Revenue Commissioners that, following the receipt of information from the Department of Social Protection, the person concerned was issued with a letter regarding his DSP income on December 30 last. Based on the information now available to Revenue, his tax is correct for 2012. On the question of arrears, Revenue have advised me that they are examining those cases with the largest non-DSP income and those cases who apply for a review first, having regard to resource and other constraints. Their approach is to make contact with those taxpayers who are of interest to them, and to invite them to submit a tax return. Their advice to taxpayers who are not contacted, is that there is no need to do anything at the moment and Revenue may be in touch with you. In the meantime, neither interest nor penalties are accruing on any undercharge that might apply.
