Freedom of Information (FOI) in Revenue

Is an FOI request always necessary?

No. The information you are seeking may already be available. For example, you can access some of your records by requesting them from your tax office or through Revenue's online services. Contact details are available in our Contact us section.

Revenue's policy is to make as much information as possible available outside of the Freedom of Information process. The FOI Act allows access to information that is not routinely available through other sources.

Revenue's FOI publication scheme, as required under Section 8 of the FOI Act, provides routinely available information. In addition, there is a wide range of information available on our website.

Next: Will Revenue release all of the information you request?
