Frequently Asked Questions
The filing deadline for your 2020 tax return is 31 October 2021.
If you earn income from self-employment and you’re considered a ‘chargeable person’ by Revenue you’re obliged to file a Form 11 tax return before the tax deadline. Form 12 tax returns are used by PAYE individuals who have additional income (not subject to PAYE) and who are not considered as ‘chargeable’ by Revenue.
Preliminary tax is an estimate of the Income Tax, Pay Related Social Insurance (PRSI) and Universal Social Charge (USC) that you expect to pay for a tax year. You must pay your 2021 preliminary tax by 31 October this year.
The amount of preliminary tax you pay must be equal to, or more than, the lowest amount of the following:
- 90% of the tax due for that tax year (2021)
- 100% of the tax due for the immediately previous tax year (2020)
- 105% of the tax due for the tax year preceding the immediately previous tax year (2019 - often called the ‘pre-preceding year’). This option only applies where you pay by direct debit. It does not apply if the tax due for the pre-preceding year was nil.

You tax return includes information about all of your sources of income (including your PAYE income) and the tax credits you’re entitled to.

No. Small passive income can be reported through the PAYE system. However, such income should be not more than €5,000.
I used Taxback.com to complete my 2016 Income Tax Return in relation to my income as a Landlord. I came across their service from an email received from Irishlandlord.com. From start to finish I couldn’t be happier with the service provided by Michelle and the team in Taxback.com. Their online application form was very straightforward and their phone support was invaluable. I would have no hesitation in recommending their service to anyone in the future.

The professional, friendly and courteous manner of the agent that dealt with my application, the speed of the whole service from start to finish and the satisfying feeling of getting back something that was rightfully mine in the first place but would never have received it had TaxBack.com not got involved and I am eternally grateful that they did.
I found the experience with Taxback very positive. Once I initiated the process the service was very professional and efficient. Mairead was easily contactable and very concise in her correspondence.
I found the service excellent, it was so easy just filling in the application form and uploading the documents, Michelle was so easy to contact and there was a reply to every email/query sent within minutes, will definitely be using the service from now on, it took up so little of my time as I didn't have to call to the accountant and made a job I dread doing every year a breeze.
"The whole process is quick and efficient. taxback.com fees offer good value for money. I am happy with the level of service I received from my agent. I received regular updates on the progress of my application My Online Tax Tracker Account was really useful."
