Revenue Commissioners to deduct property tax at source as last resort

TAOISEACH Enda Kenny says the Revenue Commissioners will only deduct the property tax from welfare payments and bank accounts as a last resort.

Revenue chairperson Josephine Feehily confirmed today the property tax would be deducted at source from those who refused to pay.

Mr Kenny said every homeowner would have "plenty of opportunity" to make arrangements for paying the property tax.

He said the deduction at source would only happen at the "end of the process" and Revenue have had similar powers for many years.
