Working from home and 4 other reasons you might be entitled to claim back tax

If you fall under any of these categories, you could be entitled to some tax back...


It's always exciting when you get a nice sum of money back in a tax rebate, but it's not always the most straightforward process.

Navigating the variety of tax credits available and completing the long, confusing tax application processes can be pretty tedious, and it can take a lot of time and effort to claim back all the money that you're entitled to.

That's why Irish Tax Rebates are taking the hassle out of claiming back your tax this year.

With over 20 years of experience, Irish Tax Rebates will claim back any tax you're owed from the last four years, saving you the time and hassle. They're trusted by over 310,000 people in Ireland and their team of expert accountants are all well-versed with the changes to tax credits in 2021, so you can rest assured you'll get every cent you're entitled to.


With that in mind, here are just some of the reasons why you might be entitled to claim back more tax this year...

You're working from home

There's been a huge increase in people working from home this year, but not everyone is aware they're entitled to a 'Work From Home Allowance'. If you were remote working for any period of time in 2020, you could be entitled to a tax rebate on your utility bills.


You've had some medical expenses

As a PAYE worker, did you know you can claim back tax on your medical costs? As well as prescription costs and GP visits, you can also claim on medical expenses such as laser eye surgery, IVF, some dental procedures and more.

You got married recently

Did you tie the knot in 2021? If you said 'I do' this year, it could be worth your while being jointly assessed with your new spouse, as you could be entitled to some extra cash because of this.



You have a child or a dependent

If you have a dependant relative, it's worth noting that the Dependent Relative Tax Credit has increased by 350% this year, from €70 to €245 per person.

If you're a single parent, you're also entitled to a Single Parent Tax Credit of €1650 per year, so it's well worth looking into if you think you might meet the criteria.


You're returning to education or you're moving abroad

While most people can't claim back tax for 2021 until January 2022, you might be entitled to claim early if:

  • You've stopped working in 2021 and started education (PLUS, you might be able to claim back some of your tuition fees in this case!)
  • You’ve already finished working for the year to move abroad.

Think you might be entitled to some tax back?

You can claim back tax for 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 NOW and you can claim tax for 2021 from 1 January 2022.

You might want to act fast though, as you're only entitled to claim back tax you're owed from the last four years - which means time is running out to claim back any money you're owed from 2017!
