Last month, INTO was made aware of delays in processing increment skips for new entrants. INTO is continuing to pursue these payments with the DES and have been advised that the processing of the skips should recommence later this month.
If a member is concerned that they have overpaid tax, they should contact Revenue directly as INTO can not advise on individual taxation matters. For information, INTO has posted an informative article on taxation from our April 2019 InTouch Magazine, see below.
INTO will ensure members are kept updated with developments as and when we know more.
