Want to know more? We’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions to help.
What’s the deadline to file my income tax return?
The deadline for filing your income tax return and paying preliminary tax is 31st October each year.
How do I know if I must submit an income tax return?
You must submit an income tax return if you are in receipt of other income apart from your PAYE income. This may include income from a trade or business, rental income, you are a Proprietary Director or you are in receipt of any other form of income. You must also file a tax return if you have been granted SARP relief (Special Assignee Relief Programme).
What is Preliminary Tax?
Preliminary tax is your estimate of income tax and related charges payable by you for the current tax year to be paid along with the previous year’s tax liability. These are both due in the same event.
In calculating your preliminary tax payment, you should ensure that it covers your liability for your Income Tax, USC & PRSI.
To calculate preliminary tax due you must choose at least one of the below:
- 90% of the tax due for that year
- 100% of the tax due for the preceding year
- 105% of the tax due for the pre-preceding year (this option only applies where you pay by direct debit - it does not apply if the tax due for the pre-preceding year was zero).
I have recently become self-employed. How can I register with the Revenue Commissioners?
Do I need to file a return if I did not make any profit?
Yes - you are obliged to file a self-assessed return every year by the deadline of 31st October, even if you did not make any profit.
What business expenses are allowable for my tax return?
The expense must be business related and must be used wholly and exclusively for the purposes of your trade.
How can I pay my tax liability to the Revenue Commissioners?
You can pay your tax liability by posting a cheque to the Collector General, by debit or credit card payment over the phone or through your Revenue profile online.
Does my income tax return include my PAYE Income?
Yes. Income earned and taxes deducted via the PAYE system are incorporated into your income tax return along with any additional non-PAYE Income. In effect an income tax return is a declaration of your full livelihood, therefore engaging the services of professionals such as Tax Return Plus is recommended.
