PAYE Employees – this is your last chance to claim a tax refund for 2015, so if you have a bit of time today, get working on your claim.
You can claim for health expenses, nursing home fees, tuition fees or flat rate expenses. The door for claims is only open for 4 years so the deadline for 2015 claims is the 31st December. Now is a good time to check that you have claimed all your entitlements before the silly season begins and you’ll be flat out getting ready for Christmas.
You can claim back tax that you have overpaid for any of the last four years at the same time if you like. You can do all this easily and conveniently online, using the PAYE Services in myAccount on line if you already have an account. And to make it even easier you can access myAccount on all mobile devices or through RevApp.
Claims are of course subject to verification, but most online refund claims are paid really quickly, so if you submit your claim online now, you may get your refund before Christmas.
The important things to remember are:
• There is a four year time limit for claiming tax refunds, so if you have a claim for 2015, go online and submit it by 31 December 2019.
• If you are not already registered for myAccount, you can register quickly and easily on the Revenue website.
Best of luck, hope you get a nice few bob back!
