So you don't know. You are just guessing. Do the Revenue keep statistics on the average number of holidays everyone who earns any particular sum takes?

You're right. I don't know and I am just guessing.

And you can be damn sure that those who are telling you that they'll never catch you know even less than me.

The thing about revenue is that if you are paying tax and “in the system” they keep coming after you for more and more

If you are “out of the system” then they don’t seem to give a damn about you

They want more and more from those who are paying while paying very little attention to those who aren’t paying a dime

The worst thing someone could do is be too honest to revenue I reckon

They only come after you if you have under paid your taxes. They're actually pretty good for dealing with overpayments and helping you to minimise payments if asked.

Just pay your taxes and you'll be fine.

Thats probably how the travellers get away without paying tax.


But even if they wanted to there is far too many travellers for the revenue to keep tabs on or investigate so they go after the middle class fools instead. Like the Doctor who put his undeclared cash into a bank account.

Those raids are for criminality and seem to have nothing to do with unpaid tax.

It is not that simple. Some inspectors refuse to accept genuine figures and raise assessment based on their own view of how a business operates. For example, most of the rice bought in by restaurants is throw away. One inspector insists that it is all used and raises assessments which cod not possible be accurate.

The revenue are a law unto themselves if they take a dislike to someone they can make their life hell.

Does this mean that you know people who were audited? How did they get caught?

Ridiculous.


If that's the reality (and it isn't) then the businesses in question should go under and they may as well go under paying out to Saorstat Eireann as anyone else!

Far from ridiculous. I have seen the inspector. Chinese takaays buy a lot more rice than they need because it is so cheap and goes off rapidly, they throw out what is left every day and buy more the next day. Up to 90% is in fact thrown out. If all of it was used in meals and served there would be queues 24/7 along the street for half a mile. Why should someone go out of business for that nonsense? Saorstát Eireann ceased to be in 1937.
