Why you should use a tax expert to claim tax back

In 2015 alone, Irish Tax Rebates have already obtained tax back for thousands of clients, with the average tax rebate amounting to €1100. With so many people receiving cheques in the post for tax back, curiosity has peaked among the people of Ireland and we have seen several questions come in across social media.

The most popular question is “Can I get tax back too?” It’s likely that you can. In fact, 75% of our customers have received tax back.

However if you don’t apply for a tax rebate, you won’t get one. Another core question that crops up a lot is “Why should I use a tax back service? Can I just go to Revenue?”.

You can of course go to Revenue and issue proceedings yourself however, there are several key benefits to using a tax back service provider such as Irish Tax Rebates to do this for you.

Less stress, more success

Claiming tax back through a tax expert service like Irish Tax Rebates is simple. Download our authorisation form, fill in the basic details required, sign it and send it back to us and we do the rest.

We will begin the proceedings to claim the tax back and send you a text to let you know if you are due a rebate. A cheque will be sent in the post to you as soon as possible.

Applying through revenue requires the completion of several different forms. Separate forms must be completed for claiming tax relief on health expenses, dental expenses, tuition fees, rent relief or claim a carer credit.

It is very easy to make an error on any of the forms that you are required to complete, as many of our clients have found, which can deter the potential amount of tax back that you could claim. It can also be confusing trying to decipher which forms you need to complete to claim tax relief on the various credits available.

Tax experts take the hassle out of applying for tax back and claiming tax relief and tend to produce more successful results than if you were to attempt to manage proceedings by yourself, as many of our own customers have found.
