How does your name end up on Revenue list?

MICK Wallace's construction firm was just one of 129 tax settlements published by the Revenue Commissioners yesterday.

The Independent TD's €2.1m settlement was one of the largest sums detailed -- and is one of five for more than €1m.

The settlements published relate to the first three months of the year and total €29.6m.

But there are still specific criteria for being named and shamed on the defaulters' list.

The list is published in two parts. Part 1 lists people who got a fine or other penalty when their case went to court for offences such as failure to file a tax return, filing an incorrect return, illegal sales of tobacco, cigarette smuggling and excise and licensing offences.

Part 2 lists people whose case resulted in the Revenue taking a sum above €12,700 or €30,000 or €33,000, depending on the periods in which the tax liabilities arise.

The sum includes liabilities due for tax, interest and penalties from a settlement.
