If you worked in any of these countries, you could be due a Tax Refund

Are you leaving thousands with the taxman? Here are the top tax reliefs that almost everyone forgets to claim.


We could all do with a little extra money in our pockets at the moment, right?

And yet, a recent Taxback.com survey revealed that only 40% of Irish taxpayers claim common tax reliefs such as medical expenses each year.

The average Irish tax refund a Taxback.com customer receives is over €1,880. So it makes a lot of sense to check out how much you can claim back.

When you apply for your tax back with Taxback.com, you are guaranteed to receive your maximum irish tax rebates straight to your bank account.

To get started, simply complete the short form here.

Let’s take a look at some of the most common tax reliefs that taxpayers too often forget to claim.

The average Irish tax refund is €1,880


Medical expenses

Been to the doctor within the last 4 years? If so, it’s pretty likely you’ll be due a tax refund of 20% of the costs.

In other words, if you pay €200 on doctor bills and medicines, you can claim €40 back.

And don’t worry if you can’t find your receipts. Your doctor and pharmacy may have a record of your GP visits and prescriptions.

In truth, this tax relief covers a wide range of medical bills including physio, non-routine dental expenses, IVF and much more.

You can find a comprehensive list here.

Finally, if you pay nursing home bills on behalf of a loved one, you can claim back 40% of the cost.

Year of marriage tax relief

Got married within the last four years?

Couples continue to be treated as single people for tax purposes in the year they get married.

So, you may be entitled to tax relief if you paid more tax as single individuals in the year you got married than you would have if you were taxed as a married couple.

Minding kids at home?

If you care for a dependent at home you may be entitled to claim a tax credit worth €1,600.

The Home Carer's Tax Credit is available to couples who are married or in civil partnership and are jointly assessed for tax purposes

If that sounds like you, why not apply for your Home Carer's Tax Credit with Taxback.com?

Working from home?

Countless Irish employees have been working from home this year due to COVID-19.

If you work from home, you may be entitled to claim tax relief on broadband, heating and electricity bills.

Tuition fees

Do you pay college fees for yourself or someone in your family?

Third level fee payers can potentially claim tax relief on tuition fees (including the student contribution) that are paid for eligible education courses.
