“It is my understanding that the tax authorities are aware of the issue and are taking it seriously,” Ms O’Brien said.
The Revenue Commissioners are expected to meet in Dublin today to discuss how to make it easier for taxpayers to pay their taxes. “
It could be that the authorities are taking this seriously and there are some issues they are looking at, so we are trying to get the information.”

Ms O’Byrne said she was not sure whether the Irish Tax Administration would be open to a similar arrangement in other parts of the world.
“I think that there are a lot of different tax regimes and this is not a single entity,” she said.
If the Government’s proposals go ahead, Ms OByran said she would not have much choice.
“There are so many different countries that are taxing different amounts of income, it is just not a simple matter to do that in Ireland,” she told the Irish Times.
“So I would hope that if the government is going to adopt this, it will be in the spirit of fairness and equality, not in the pursuit of some political point that may or may not have merit.”
