permanent tsb is obliged to deduct government stamp duty (currently €30 per account) from your account on the 1st April each year in respect of the previous 12 months or when you close your account.
If you are switching your credit card to permanent tsb from another provider you should request a letter of closure from your previous provider confirming that government stamp duty has been paid in the current charging period. Please forward the letter to: permanent tsb Visa Department, Main Street, Dundrum, Dublin 14 to ensure that stamp duty is not applied to your credit card account for that period at the next charging date. If you close your permanent tsb credit card account, stamp duty will be deducted for the current year. We will send you a letter of closure which confirms you have paid the stamp duty for the current year which you can forward to your new provider.
