Statutory appeal procedures
Under Irish law there is an independent appeal process to review your tax and duty affairs. An appeal is made by giving notice in writing to the relevant Revenue official who will arrange for the hearing of your appeal by the Appeal Commissioners. The Appeal Commissioners, who are appointed by the Minister for Finance, are completely independent of the Revenue Commissioners.
The Office of the Appeal Commissioners is located at:
Telephone: (01) 662 45 30
E-mail: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Fax: (01) 661 1892
(Please see Revenue leaflets C&E 5 - Appeal Procedures relating to Customs Matters or C&E 6 - Appeals Procedures relating to Payment of Excise Duty for information on the appeal procedures applying to Customs or Excise matters).
You can also contact the Office of the Ombudsman if you are unhappy about the way in which we have handled any aspect of your tax affairs. The Ombudsman's staff examine complaints about the administrative actions of Government Departments and Offices, including the Revenue Commissioners.
