Irish PAYE Tax Refunds

If you’re a PAYE (Pay as You Earn) worker, such as a receptionist, nurse, teacher, guard, lecturer, engineer, manager, your employer will deduct tax from your earnings. Most people don’t know that they may be entitled to a refund of some of the tax paid during the year. The average Irish tax refund is reportedly between €650 and €840 each year so can you afford not to? PAYE workers can and should make claims for additional tax credits and tax reliefs which you are entitled to including the following more common ones (list not exhaustive). Revenue will permit a tax payer to go back over most recent 4 years to claim tax refunds on:

Unreimbursed Medical and dental expenses tax relief

Rent relief tax credit

Permanent Health Insurance premiums

PRSA contributions outside your employer pension scheme

Qualifying Third Level tuition fees

Single parent tax credit

Deed of covenant

Top Slicing Relief on taxable redundancy payment
