Pay and file income tax deadline

Nov 18, 2019

The ROS pay and file deadline for 2018 Form 11 income tax returns was extended until midnight last night, Sunday 17 November.  This was as a result of technical failures with the ROS service on Tuesday 12 November and Wednesday 13 November.  ROS was updated to remove the late filing surcharge applying to returns filed up to midnight 17 November. We were in constant contact with Revenue relaying members’ concerns and frustrations with the service and devising a timely solution on such an important tax deadline day.

Regular timely updates on the status of the ROS service were posted to our website, across our social media channels, in direct email communication to all District Societies and responding to members.  We also issued three special Tax Newsletters. Read our newsletters:

Notices were posted on the Revenue website, firstly on the extension and then the next day on the further extension to 17 November. 

We will continue our engagement with Revenue via the TALC forums representing members’ concerns and views on the ROS failures.
