Rebate Superstar  

Job Title: Maintenance Technician
Rebate Secured: €14,216  

Our rebate superstar this month is a Maintenance Technician, living and working in Dublin. He and his spouse, who works in a secondary school, contacted the Irish Tax Rebates experts, as they were sure they were owed money but didn’t have the time to apply for their rebate themselves.  

This couple hadn’t applied for a rebate in a few years, so our Accountants were able to claim back multiple years’ worth of overpaid taxes from the Revenue Commissioners. In addition, both partners had unclaimed expenses going back a few years, making up a good portion of this massive rebate. 

These expenses, called flat rate expenses, are expenditures that are made specifically in relation to a person’s occupation. For this coupleour accountants helped them to claim back money that was spent on materials, uniforms, PPE, footwear, and other work-related purchases.  

Our experts also noted that this couple were not being assessed together despite having been married for a number of years. This made a difference to their taxes, as some tax credits are doubled for married couples that are assessed jointly, significantly increasing the total possible rebate. In addition, choosing to be assessed jointly can actually increase the standard tax rate cut-off point by up to €24,800 if both partners are earning.   

After combing through this couple’s taxes, our expert Accountants were able to uncover thousands of euros worth of unclaimed expenses and overpaid taxes, and deliver €14,216 in his bank account within just 12 working days.
