What Can I Claim

What can I claim for?

Most employees in Ireland pay tax through the PAYE (Pay As You Earn) system, where your employer deducts tax directly from your wages for Revenue.

Every PAYE worker gets tax credits, which include reliefs you may be able to claim depending on your circumstances.

Even if you’ve left the country but have worked in Ireland within the last 4 years or you only worked part of the year, you can still claim!

There are lots of occupations that can claim for flat rate expenses such as:

Healthcare Staff
Bar Staff
Public Servants
Retail Staff

Restaurant Staff
Hotel Staff

Veterinary Nurses
Bus Drivers
Train Drivers
Defence Forces
Home Help

There are just too many occupations to list so why not fill out our quick and easy online form here and find out if you are due a tax refund!

Claiming back overpaid USC

At My Tax Back, we check for refunds of USC for many things such as for any overpayments due to working more than one job or only working part of the year. If you earn under €13,000 pa, you are not liable to pay USC. However, if your weekly income is above a certain amount, Revenue can automatically assume you earn this level of income all year round and deduct USC accordingly which means you end up being overcharged. So, if you only worked for part of the year during the last 4 years make sure you fill in My Tax Backs online form so we can get it back for you!
