Offaly Taxpayers Urged To Claim Tax Back Before 31 December Deadline

Many PAYE workers can claim tax back, for example on health expenses, nursing home fees, tuition fees or flat-rate expenses. However, it is important to remember that there is a four year time limit to submit your claim.

Last October, Revenue wrote to more than 137,000 PAYE workers who have not applied for any tax refund in the last four years.  Even if you did not get a letter from Revenue, now is a good time to check your records and make sure you have claimed all your entitlements, before the 31 December deadline passes.  Most online refund claims are paid within 5 working days. The important things to remember are:


  • There is a 4-year time limit for claiming tax refunds, so if you have a claim for 2012, go online and submit it by 31 December 2016.
  • The quickest, easiest and most convenient way to claim your tax back is online, using myAccount.


  • If you’re not already registered for  myAccount,  you can register quickly and easily on the Revenue website.
