Model Glenda Gilson and Padraig O'Shea, the manager of a school, are among the individuals to feature on the latest tax defaulters’ list.

Mr O’Shea of Borrisoleigh, Thurles, Co Tipperary, made a settlement of over €705,000 with the Revenue Commissioners arising from the under-declaration of income tax according to the latest list of tax defaulters published this afternoon.

Mr O’ Shea’s profession is listed as a private school operator.

Ms Gilson, with an address on College Gate, Castleknock, settled a tax bill of €73,000 with Revenue in relation to the under-declaration of income tax.

Other individuals include John Hall, a “retired money lender” from Crumlin who was faced with a tax bill of €720,000 for under-declaration of income tax and offshore assets.

Bloodstock agent Hugo Merry made a settlement of €85,000 according to the list.

Today’s list, which covered the three months to the end of June, included 106 settlements with a total value of €19.80 million.

Of the 106 cases, six settlements totalling €1.95 million relate to offshore funds.

Not all tax settlements are published in the quarterly list - only those where the default is as a result of careless or deliberate behaviour, according to the Revenue.

Where a taxpayer has voluntarily furnished information to the tax authorities relating to undisclosed tax liabilities, and paid the tax and interest due, settlements or determinations are not published, it says.
