As reported through rte.ie, Revenue are currently writing to over 130,000 PAYE taxpayers that have not claimed any additional tax credits/reliefs in the previous four years, reminding them to claim their entitlements for the year 2015 before 31st December 2018.
As you may be aware, there is a four-year time limit on claiming tax back on for example; medical expenses, tuition fees and for claiming tax credits/reliefs on for example, home carer’s credit.
Pat Murphy, National PAYE Manager in Revenue’s Personal Division explains;
“You can claim a refund of tax paid if there are entitlements you are due but have yet to claim,” he said.
“However, there is a four-year time limit for claiming tax refunds and the deadline for 2015 claims is December 31, 2019, so now is a good time to check that you have claimed all of your entitlements.”
If you have a claim for 2015, you need to submit this by 31st December. Generally, Revenue are issuing refunds within 5 days so there is still time to claim yours before Christmas!
