Reminder to claim your tax credits and reliefs before end of year

Nov 11, 2019

You or your clients may revive a letter in the post from Revenue this week regarding claims for tax credits and reliefs.  This is because Revenue is writing to approximately 130,000 PAYE taxpayers who have paid tax but have not claimed any additional tax credits or reliefs in the last five years, to remind them that there is a four-year time limit for claiming a refund of tax. 

There is a four-year time limit for claiming tax refunds.  Therefore, any claims back to 2015 will have to be submitted to Revenue by 31 December 2019.  More information is set out in the Revenue notice
