Mortgage relief blunder

Almost 1,500 mortgage holders may not have received their most recent payment for mortgage interest tax relief from the Revenue Commissioners.

The tax body said that this was due to an error in the information it provided to mortgage lenders about these customers.

Revenue said that it was working to rectify the issue, which would be done before the February payment, and apologised for any inconvenience.

Revenue administers the tax relief at source on mortgage interest for around 343,000 mortgage accounts
