Accessing Schedule E Information - 2016 Income Tax Return
The pre-population of tax returns makes them easier to complete, speeds up filing and reduces the need to contact Revenue.
As set out in Tax and Duty Manual Part 38-01-04a, pay, tax and Universal Social Charge (USC) details provided by employers, and certain Department of Social Protection payment amounts, are pre-populated in the 2016 Income Tax return where the information is available to Revenue.
Additionally, Tax and Duty Manual Part 38-06-05 outlines how to access this information for customers who have a PAYE registration only.
Where pre-populated, pay, tax and USC information is available through the Revenue Online Service (ROS) - as set out in these manuals - it will not be made available through other contact channels such as the telephone or MyEnquiries.
