Income tax and sur-tax for the year 1934-35.

1.—(1) Income tax shall be charged for the year beginning on the 6th day of April, 1934, at the rate of four shillings and six pence in the pound.

(2) Sur-tax for the year beginning on the 6th day of April, 1934, shall be charged in respect of the income of any individual the total of which from all sources exceeds one thousand five hundred pounds and shall be so charged at the same rates as those at which it was charged for the year beginning on the 6th day of April, 1933.

(3) The several statutory and other provisions which were in force during the year beginning on the 6th day of April, 1933, in relation to income tax and sur-tax shall, subject to the provisions of this Act, have effect in relation to the income tax and sur-tax to be charged as aforesaid for the year beginning on the 6th day of April, 1934.

Cesser of certain allowances for repairs.

2.—(1) Rules 7 and 8 (which relate to certain allowances for repairs and maintenance) of No. V (Rules in respect of deductions and allowances) of Schedule A of the Income Tax Act, 1918, as amended by subsequent enactments, shall cease to have effect in respect of any assessment other than an assessment on any lands or on any farmhouse or farm buildings occupied together with any lands for the purpose of farming such lands or on any premises being mills, factories, or other similar premises.

(2) Where the Revenue Commissioners are satisfied, in respect of any house or building of which the annual value ascertained in accordance with section 187 of the Income Tax Act, 1918, does not exceed five pounds, that—

(a) such house or building is bona fide let to a tenant, and

(b) the cost of the repairs, maintenance, and insurance of such house or building is borne by the landlord or immediate lessor, and

(c) the annual income derived by the said landlord or immediate lessor from such house or building, taking one year with another, after making allowances for the cost to him of the said repairs, maintenance, and insurance is less than the annual value ascertained as aforesaid of such house or building,

the Revenue Commissioners may grant such relief by repayment or otherwise, as is just.

Certain assessments under Schedule E.

3.—(1) Assessments under Schedule E of the Income Tax Act, 1918, on persons to whom the Public Services (Temporary Economies) Act, 1933 (No. 37 of 1933), applied shall be computed as if the last-mentioned Act had not been enacted.

(2) For the purpose of computing an assessment under Schedule E of the Income Tax Act, 1918, for the year commencing on the 6th day of April, 1934, on a person who is an officer within the meaning of the Local Services (Temporary Economies) Act, 1934 (No. 16 of 1934), there shall be allowed a deduction equal to the amount of the deduction made or to be made in respect of the financial year beginning on the 1st day of April, 1934, under the said Local Services (Temporary Economies) Act, 1934 , from the salary (within the meaning of that Act) of such person.

(3) For the purpose of computing assessments for the year beginning on the 6th day of April, 1934, under Schedule E of the Income Tax Act, 1918, on national school teachers in respect of remuneration receivable by them as such, the following provisions shall (without prejudice to the application and operation of sub-section (1) of this section) apply and have effect, that is to say:—

(a) the revised scales of salary and other grants sanctioned by the Minister for Education with the concurrence of the Minister for Finance and brought into operation as on and from the 1st day of April, 1934, shall be deemed to have been in operation in respect of the financial year beginning on the 1st day of April, 1933, and

(b) any deduction from salary or other grants on account of premiums payable under the National School Teachers (Ireland) Act, 1879 , in respect of the said financial year beginning on the 1st day of April, 1933, shall be deemed not to have been made.

Assessment of certain royalties and other payments.

4.—The word “rents” wherever it occurs in the Income Tax Acts as part of the expression “stocks, shares, and rents” in relation to income arising outside Saorst[html]t Eireann, shall include and be deemed always to have included any payment in the nature of a royalty and any annual or periodical payment in the nature of a rent derived from any lands, tenements, hereditaments, or heritages, including lands, tenements, hereditaments, or heritages to which the Rules of No. III of Schedule A of the Income Tax Act, 1918, or of Part I of the First Schedule to the Finance Act, 1929 (No. 32 of 1929), would apply or have applied if such lands, tenements, hereditaments, or heritages were situate in Saorst[html]t Eireann.

Power to grant relief in certain cases.

5.—Where the Revenue Commissioners are satisfied that the application of the provisions of Part II of the First Schedule to the Finance Act, 1929 (No. 32 of 1929), would give rise to hardship in the case of income derived from an employment exercised wholly outside Saorst[html]t Eireann, they may grant such relief as in their opinion is just.

Exercise of powers by one Special Commissioner.

6.—Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in any Act—

(a) any precept under section 139 of the Income Tax Act, 1918, may be issued by one Special Commissioner, and

(b) any application by any person for an adjustment of his liability and any claim by any person for exemption, abatement, relief or repayment of tax may be heard and determined by one Special Commissioner.

Issue of warrants and delivery of duplicates.

7.—(1) The Special Commissioners shall from time to time and as often as shall appear to them to be necessary, issue warrants signed (but not necessarily sealed) by two of such Commissioners appointing the persons named in such warrants to be collectors of the tax and sums of money (including any arrears) assessed and charged in the duplicates of assessments, and requiring and empowering the said persons to demand, collect, recover, and levy such tax and sums of money, including as aforesaid.

(2) Every warrant issued by the Special Commissioners before the commencement of this Part of this Act shall be, and be deemed always to have been, as valid and effectual as it would have been if the next preceding sub-section of this section had been in force when such warrant was issued.

(3) After the expiration of the respective times for the hearing of appeals (including appeals in relation to tax chargeable for a year of assessment beginning before the commencement of this Part of this Act) the inspector of taxes shall cause duplicates of all assessments to be delivered to the persons appointed by the Special Commissioners to be collectors.

(4) The issue, whether before or after the commencement of this Part of this Act, of a warrant signed (but not necessarily sealed) by two Special Commissioners shall be and be deemed always to have been sufficient authority to empower the persons named in such warrant to demand, collect, recover, and levy in accordance with such warrant the tax and sums of money (including arrears) assessed and charged in the duplicates of assessments.

(5) Section 197 of the Income Tax Act, 1918, is hereby repealed, and it is hereby declared that the foregoing sub-sections of this section shall have effect notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in the Income Tax Act, 1918, or any other enactment.
