Was having a look back at some old threads here and came across a few referring to Bertie Ahern's tax status...
In 2002 Bertie Ahern declared himself to be tax compliant, but was subsequently unable to furnish a tax clearance certificate after being elected in 2007, and lodged a considerable sum of money with Revenue in case a judgement was made against him... he was allowed continue as a TD and Taoiseach, because Revenue were still reviewing his case in light of allegations made in the Mahon Tribunal... however, that has subsequently reported, so Revenue should be able to work out whether he has any liability or not..
So, since then, has he settled up his affairs with Revenue ?
Did he have to make a further payment over and above what he lodged with Revenue ?
Was he tax compliant as he said he was in 2002 ?
If he hasn't settled with the Revenue, should the State be continuing to pay his a substantial pension from scarce State resources ?
Why hasn't Micheal Martin asked questions about this in the Dail ?
