Frequently Asked Questions

At My Tax Back, we get a lot of questions each day about anything and everything tax related. We have compiled answers to the frequently asked questions we receive every day. If you have a question about tax that isn't answered below, feel free to get in contact with us any time.

How do I make a claim?

Simply follow the steps on our 'How to page' to complete your application in less than 1 minute.

What are your fees?

It is completely free to submit a claim. You are not required to make any upfront payment or provide bank details. If we are successful in recovering a refund for you, we will charge a fee of 10% (+VAT) of any refund we obtain for you, subject to a minimum fee of €24 (+VAT). Where the rebate does not cover our minimum fee, there will be no additional charges to pay.

How long does the process take?

Most claims are completed within 2 weeks, but during busy times or for more complex claims, it may take a little bit longer.

How many years can I claim back?

You can claim a tax refund for the last 4 tax years.

How will I get paid?

You have two payment options when you sign up with My Tax Back. We can send you your tax refund via bank transfer or by cheque.

I think I may have done a claim in the past, is it worth doing again?

Of course it is! Tax can be overpaid at any time, during any year, so it is definitely worth doing another claim.

Can I make a tax claim if I have left Ireland?

If you have worked and paid tax in Ireland within the last 4 years then you are still eligible to claim.
