Specific CAT queries.

Who do I contact with a specific CAT query?

The area of inheritances and gifts and the taxes that are applied to them is similar to all Revenue taxes… a minefield of “unless you are a…”. There are however experts you can contact with any CAT query you have.

Whether you are planning for your own estate or you are expecting to receive an inheritance or large gift, the best person to speak with is a suitably up to date accountant or estate planner. They will (should) be up to speed on what legal approaches you an take to minimise any CAT you or your beneficiaries will have to pay. If you do not know anyone in this area, please contact me and I will put you in touch with someone who can help.

You can alternatively contact the Revenue CAT Information Unit directly with any specific questions, but please remember that they are agents of the Revenue Commissioners and as such, may not advise you, but they can just answer questions. They may or may not be in a position to assist you with reducing your CAT liability.
