Nothing To Declare



Except their cute hooriness.

* County Roscommon had the highest rate of convictions [for tax offences], where the number of cases per 100,000 of population was 671.

* Almost ten times higher than the lowest in Kilkenny, where the rate was just 68 per 100,000.

* The construction sector had more than double the offenders of any other sector, and accounted for over a third of all the convictions.

* Farmers accounted for the biggest number of tax convictions. They made up 10.4% of the Revenue list, followed by company directors (4.7%), builders (3.5%) and building contractors (3.2%).

Some of the results [more at link below] of an RTÉ Investigations Unit analysis using 13 years of official Revenue figures of “recorded convictions in the period 2002 to 2014 for certain types of tax offences”.

    A pittance… we need to get the nom doms or kick ’em out altogether! Or at least they should be made check their passport every time they come and go to ensure they don’t over stay !

    Do you hear me Denis?

    They’d steal the milk outta yer tay down there. Oh indeed, they’d rob the eye out of your head and come back for the eyelash.

    All we hear about are struggling families being blamed for social welfare fraud or a father getting jail for stealing nappies.

    Yet by far the greatest fraud is tax evasion by so called respectable types.

    Those bubble diagrams are fierce misleading, only the radius of each bubble is in proportion to the figures quoted, hence the farming bubble looks huge in area in comparison to all others, as the area of the bubble is proportional to the square of the radius.

    Basic Project Maths lads.

    Maybe if more people in Roscommon paid their taxes, they wouldn’t have to close the regional hospital there.

    “Can’t pay, won’t pay, but give me everything for free” again.

    And just because you think DOB doesn’t pay his fair share of taxes doesn’t mean you also don’t have to.
