Dec 07, 2020

Revenue has announced an extension of the 2019 Pay and File deadline until 6pm tomorrow, 11 December 2020. Revenue acknowledges the on-going efforts by taxpayers and agents who are working towards a deadline of midnight tonight. Having regard to those efforts and the associated pressures of meeting the deadline, Revenue has announced a further extension until 6pm tomorrow, 11 December 2020.

Yesterday, Revenue processed almost 30,000 Form 11 returns for 2019 and over 14,000 returns have been filed via ROS so far today. The total number of 2019 income tax returns filed to date is now in excess of 500,000.

Chartered Accountants Ireland contacted Revenue about the problems with ROS on Monday. We emphasised how crucial it is that ROS is fully operational for taxpayers and their accountants working on the income tax deadline.  Revenue is confident that ROS has capacity to deal with the high volume of tax returns due to be filed over the coming days.  

The extension to the 2019 Pay & File deadline applies to self-assessment income taxpayers and for taxpayers liable to Capital Acquisitions Tax (CAT) who file their 2019 returns online via ROS.
