Income tax refunds deadline

It is important for taxpayers to be aware that the Revenue Commissioners apply a four-year time limit for claiming income tax refunds.

Accordingly, any claim relating to the income tax for the year ended 31 December 2017 must be submitted to the Revenue Commissioners by 31 December 2021.

Such claims apply not only to PAYE workers but also individuals who have an obligation to submit a tax return under Self-Assessment.
