Deductions exist to help lower your taxable income, but there is no standard one that exists in every scenario. Although, technically, things like the deduction for employment expenses is available to everyone, but the amount will differ wildly from person to person.

On the other hand, tax credits are also available and standard ones with preditable amounts do exist.

Individuals age 65 and above are eligible for an income tax exemption which states that they will only be liable for income tax if their income is over a certain amount which varies based on filing status.

Social Security in Ireland

Social security in Ireland consists of the pay-related social insurance (PRSI) and the universal social charge (USC).

PRSI is charged on employment income while USC is charged on gross income. Contribution rates for PRSI, which are shared between employers and employees, stand at 4% for employees while contribution rates for USC are progressive and range from 0.5% to 8% depending on your income and age.

Individuals earning an income lower than a certain amount do not have to contribute.

Note that PRSI contributions are calculated and assessed on a weekly basis. For example, this means that if your income is less than the minimum required for PRSI contributions for a certain week, you will not be required to contribute during that week.

Resident status and income tax in Ireland

Residents taxpayers who are also domiciled (meaning to have their permanent residence) in Ireland are subject to Irish income tax on worldwide income.

Individuals who are considered residents for tax purposes, but are not domiciled in Ireland, are subject to Irish income tax on Irish-sourced income, foreign-sourced income earned while carrying out duties in Ireland, and all other foreign-sourced income that it is remitted into Ireland.

Non-residents are typically only subject to Irish income tax on Irish-sourced income.

Individuals are considered residents for tax purposes if they stay in Ireland for 183 days or more in a year or 280 days or more in the current and preceding year combined with each year including at least 30 days of stay. Otherwise, for the most part, individuals would be considered as non-residents.

Some factors are about your family such as the number of dependents, children, relatives, parents, etc. Other factors may include mortgage payments, property depreciation, charitible donations, additional voluntary retirement contributions, etc. Whether or not you are handicapped and/or disabled may also sometimes be an additional factor.
  • Depending on region and jurisdiction, salary bonuses may be treated and taxed differently from standard salary. Additionally, some cities may have city specific income tax.
  • This income tax calculator only estimates income tax. It does not consider other taxes like property tax, self-employment tax, capital gains tax, dividend tax, etc.
  • Income tax calculators from other sites may show slightly different numbers due to different deductions/credits being included or they are based on data from a different year.
