While there were no large Wallace-like settlements for people with Longford addresses, there were 16 people or companies from within the county who came to settlements with the courts between January 1 and March 31 this year.

There were no Longford addresses in Part 11 of the Revenue’s list – tax settlements of a more serious matter exceeding €13,000 – but there were a number in Part 1. Most of these offences were for failure to lodge income or corporation tax returns as well as a number who were found guilty of various excise and licensing offences.

In total, settlements of €25,000 are due from the 16 Longford individuals or companies. Nationally in the three months from January 1 to March 31, settlements for a total of 129 cases were imposed to a total worth of €29.6 million. Of the 129 published cases, 62 were for amounts exceeding €100,000; of which 13 exceeded €500,000 and five exceeded €1,000,000.
