Wallace tops up pay with €41,000 Dail perk – National News – Independent.ie
TAX cheat Mick Wallace is claiming an extra Dail allowance worth €41,000 — after a year of not taking the cash.
The Irish Independent has learned that Mr Wallace started taking the controversial leader’s allowance, which is unvouched and untaxed, in recent months.
But the Independent TD has refused to say if he decided to draw down the payment following revelations about his massive €2.1m tax bill.
Mr Wallace said in June he would give up half his €92,000 TD’s salary to help pay his tax debt as part of an agreed settlement with Revenue.
