Petition: Give Paye Workers A Tax Amesty On Covid Payments

Many workers have received bills for extra tax due because they received Covid payments. In the present situtaio0n of economic hardship this is not acceptable.

People Before Profit have called for an effective tax amnesty for workers facing tax bills as a result of receiving Covid related support payments over the past year.

The party has described as “frightening” reports from workers of much larger tax bills than the revenue authorities had first suggested and said these bills, while formally not due for payment this year, where already impacting on many workers, including front line workers in transport and health related sectors.

Many workers who may have claimed tax refunds on medical and health related expenses, for example, are finding that they are having these normal refunds deducted from any outstanding amount of tax owed as a result of been placed on the TWSS or the EWSS schemes. Effectively they are repaying these bills now, not next years or over 4 years as Revenue and the Minister had reassured them

  • We note that the massively profitable banks will pay no tax for years to come.
  • We note that special arrangements have been made to facilitate tax exiles during this pandemic.
  • We note that many business interests have received substantial grants to help them suruce this crisis.
  • We are therefore calling on the government to bring in an emergency tax amnesty on the Covid payments.
