  191. Ms C. Murphy asked the Minister for Finance the reason, despite submitting an application, a person (details supplied) in County Kildare has not been provided with confirmation from the Revenue Commissioners that they were self-employed during a particular period; if it is standard practise for the Revenue Commissioners to provide such confirmations; and the application procedure for such confirmations. [27433/05]

  Mr. Cowen: I have been advised by the Revenue Commissioners that they have no record of having received a written application from the taxpayer requesting confirmation of self-employment. However following a telephone call from the agent acting on behalf of the tax payer on 3 October, 2005, a letter issued to the taxpayer on the same day giving the information requested. It is standard practice to provide such confirmation on receipt of a request by letter, fax, e-mail or telephone call from a taxpayer or the agent acting on behalf of the taxpayer.
