It has been reported that just over half of eligible individuals for rent credit are missing out and yet to register. To avail of rent credit, the landlord has to be registered with the Residential Tenancies Board, for the tenant to qualify. This requirement aims to create a fair and transparent system for both renters and landlords.
Under the scheme, eligible single individuals who are renting can receive €500 per year from Revenue. Similarly, couples who are eligible and renting may receive €1,000 annually and Parents or guardians of students who are paying accommodation costs for college are also covered under the scheme.
To claim, there are two options;
- directly submit the claim to Revenue
- include it when filing your annual tax return.
It’s important to note that the deadline for claiming the rent credit is due to end in 2025. You can currently claim for the years 2022 and 2023.
