Deputy Leo Varadkar Deputy Leo Varadkar
Deputy Leo Varadkar asked the Tánaiste and Minister for Finance if he will provide a county breakdown of income tax, VAT, stamp duty and corporation profit tax for 2007; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [11186/08]
Deputy Brian Cowen Deputy Brian Cowen
Deputy Brian Cowen: In response to previous similar Parliamentary Questions answered on 4 December 2007 estimated data for the years 2002-2006 was supplied by the Revenue Commissioners. The information furnished on tax returns does not generally require the yield relating to a county to be identified and as such certain assumptions had to be made in supplying the information. As regards data for 2007, I am further advised by the Revenue Commissioners that the necessary detailed information which would provide a basis for estimating the breakdown of yields in 2007 from Income Tax, VAT, and Corporation Tax is not as yet sufficiently complete or reliable to enable such an estimate to be provided at this time. Furthermore, it will be some time before Revenue will be able to supply information similar to that supplied for the previous years.
