Irish Revenue Encourages Taxpayers To Apply For Refunds

by Jason Gorringe, Tax-News.com, London

06 December 2016


The Irish Revenue has issued a reminder to Pay as You Earn (PAYE) workers that there is a four-year time limit to submit tax refund claims.

Revenue said that "now is a good time to check your records and make sure you have claimed all your entitlements, before the December 31 deadline passes."

Revenue explained that many PAYE workers can claim tax back on sums including health expenses, nursing home fees, tuition fees, and flat-rate expenses. It said that most online refund claims are paid within five working days.

Revenue added that any claims for 2012 must be submitted by December 31, 2016. The quickest and easiest way to claim tax back is online, via the myAccount system, it said.

Last October, Revenue wrote to more than 137,000 PAYE workers who had not applied for any tax refund in the last four years.
