Quick facts


Taxes and tax credits
All working people are obliged to pay tax in Ireland:
  • Income Tax

  • Pay-Related Social Insurance (PRSI)
  • Local Property Tax (LPT)

At the same time, all working people are entitled to use a huge number of tax credits from the state.

The detailed information about the tax credits can be found at REVENUE.IE home page

Some of them are provided automatically. However, in order to get access to the full list of tax credits, you just need to initiate the online registration process.

Current income tax rates
The tax rate depends on the income, i.e. the higher is the income, the bigger are taxes. In 2019, the rate of the income tax starts from 20% for salaries of less than 35,300€ and reaches 40% for salaries over 35,300€.
