Details about income tax in Ireland

The personal income tax system in Ireland is a progressive tax system.

The income values for each tax bracket are shifted slightly depending on your filing status.

Married with two incomes (with each being at least €26,300)On first € 70,600From € 70,600 onwards

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, 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 over are eligible for income tax exemptions that essentially act as deductions to lower the taxable income. In other words, those earning less than certain amounts defined by these exemptions will not have tax due.

Social Security in Ireland

Social security in Ireland consist 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 stand at 4% for employees while contribution rates for USC are progressive and range from 0.5% to 8% depending on your income.

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 and age.

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.
