    Backpay all taxed at top rate, but would have been taxed at standard rate. Revenue not budging.

    Lep, This is not a case of Revenue arbitrarily changing its practice or being obstructive but rather that section 112 was amended by FA 2017. That amendment changed the basis of assessment of emoluments to the year they were paid rather than the year they were earned. Revenue cannot act in...

    Backpay all taxed at top rate, but would have been taxed at standard rate. Revenue not budging.

    I was thinking more that your T.D. might table a parliamentary question. In that way the government would have to justify the change in the basis of assessment. Arrears of pay would be a common enough occurrence and so lots of people might be impacted.

    Backpay all taxed at top rate, but would have been taxed at standard rate. Revenue not budging.

    Revenue cannot help you in this matter. It is obliged to administer the legislation as written and so it must apply the FA 2017 changes in the basis of assessment. However, I cannot see the purpose for the legislative change. In FA 2017, it comes under the heading of PAYE Modernisation. But...

    Why do we need an army?

    How would this work? Justice and Defence combined into one department under the control of one Minister?

    Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) orders

    I’m not sure where you are coming from on DNR orders @ elacsaplau. This is not a black and white issue and I don’t think it should be expressed as such. In my experience, the DNRs were the last resort after long and painful illnesses and as I mentioned in the case of two relatives, there were...

    Why do we vote on Fridays?

    The Environment Minister sets the polling date. Saturdays would seem to be more suitable unless of course they clash with major events, such as the controversy over the Six Nations Rugby Match against England in Twickenham back in 2016. The polling day was on the Friday before the match and...

    Pension Options on PRSA Maturity

    Thanks Steven. I'm wondering whether it might be better to invest the residual amount of €85,500 elsewhere for a time just to boost it up a bit before buying an annuity or an ARF. The person concerned could just about manage on the OAP for a while.

    Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) orders

    There was no hope of survival beyond a few hours. They were all in great pain, and in one case in agony.

    Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) orders

    This is a difficult situation, especially for the nearest and dearest. My own experience of three of my relatives, two in Ireland and one abroad, was that clinicians were very sensitive and gave us copious medical information and as much time as we needed to reflect. From their medical...

    Denied Boarding

    I have one of the newer passports. The data page is opposite the "signature" page so that both can be checked together. As far as I can remember, the documentation accompanying the passport advised me to sign the passport as soon as I received it.

    Taxed too much for years

    I think the OP's point is that the Gross Pay on the P60 includes the invalidity pension to which the employer is applying income tax, USC and PRSI. In other words that the PHI payment should be 15,608.54 i.e., 27,410.04 - Invalidity Pension 11,801.50. Therefore the point at issue is whether...

    Taxed too much for years

    Yes, but as you previously stated that was your net pay 8 years ago. I really think you need to clarify matters with your employer first before pursuing your claim with Revenue. Find out what your gross pay plus benefits-in-kind would have been in 2016 and later years before deduction of the...

    Taxed too much for years

    You stated that your net salary per week was 550per week, i.e., 2,800 per annum. What was your gross salary? Does the PHI take account of pay increases?

    Taxed too much for years

    Hi Motherof3 Per your details, your final payslip shows: PHI : 1,921.81 + BIK Healthcare: 362.36, which combined would equal 27,410.04 annually. I note that USC and PRSI have been applied to the full amount of that payment. Invalidity Pensions are not subject to either USC or PRSI. Are you...
