Revenue Commissioner.


Section 26 of the Finance Act, 1963 , transferred the power to make Sur-tax assessments from the Special Commissioners to Inspectors of Taxes. As a consequence, it became necessary to amend the Regulations of 13th September, 1929 (S.R. & O., No. 48 of 1929), which laid down various procedures and were based on the making of Sur-tax assessments by the Special Commissioners. The present Regulations make the necessary amendments.

The only other change made by these Regulations is to fix the time within which an appeal against a Sur-tax assessment may be given at twenty-one days. This change has been made so that the time-limit for appeals against Income Tax and Sur-tax assessments may be the same.
