30 September Pay & File Plan ‘scrapped’

RTE News are reporting a claim from independent TD Michael Lowry that the Government have abandoned their plans to bring forward the annual  Pay & File tax deadline to 30 September, as part of the 2011 Finance Bill.

According to RTE, ‘Mr Lowry said that the Government also agreed not to bring forward the pay and file deadline of 30 September.’

This is very welcome news and avoids the nightmare prospect of an entire month being shaved off this year’s tax return season, as I highlighed last Friday.

Well done Mr. Lowry. And thank you…

Michael Lowry announces scrapping of 30 September Pay & File



  1. This is also an example of a politician using his leverage to negotiate something of national, as distinct from local or personal interest. Which of course is how it should be. Local issues should be the preserve of the county councillors; Leinster House politicians should be motivated only by national matters. We need to separate the two entirely, in my opinion.

  2. Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with the pictures on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my end or if it’s the
    blog. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
