Revenue Commissioners delighted with ‘exceptional’ property tax compliance
The Revenue Commissioners are praising the public for the "exceptional" rate of compliance with the property tax.
94% have paid last year's tax with 90% complying with the 2014 charge so far.
However, they have given a stark warning to those yet to pay who they claim are "cheating their neighbours".
Revenue collected €38bn in tax last year up by a massive €1.2bn on 2012.
The net take for all the major tax heads including income; excise duty and VAT were all up.
Revenue added its biggest challenge was introducing the property tax.
Revenue is now sounding a warning to those yet to pay either the tax or the household charge.
More than 250,000 households will be targetted for a blitz, with the charge plus interest and penalties to be deducted from their salary.
