Home carers tax credit for married couples or civil partnerships where one partner works from home caring for a dependant

Millions of euros lost due to unclaimed home carers tax credit

Have you heard of the home carers tax credit? Due to a lack of public awareness there are millions of euros that go unclaimed each and every year in Ireland. The vast majority of people believe it applies to carers who provide support and home care to elderley or disabled patients. This is a misunderstanding however. The credit is intended for people who work from home and care for one or more dependants, in a marriage or civil partnership.

Assessment for home carers tax credit

The married couple, or civil partners are jointly assessed for tax. The home carers tax credit can be applied when a spouse or civil partner works in the home, caring for one or more dependants. This includes a child or an elderly relative.

Part time work

The home carer can earn up to €7,200 within the year. They still qualify for the home carers tax credit so having a part time job does not immediately disqualify individuals from applying for this tax credit. A reduced tax credit is available for individuals who’s annual earnings are up to €9,400.
