Home Care Tax Relief

We can guide you through the process of claiming tax relief on the cost of our Home Care Service.

  • You can claim Tax relief on the payments made to Home Carer Independent Living at your marginal rate of tax which is 20% or 40%.

  • Maximum tax relief in a calendar year for Home Care Services is currently €75,000 for 2018.

Tax Relief Application Steps

PAYE Tax Payer:

  • You can claim tax relief monthly through your salary or at the end of the year.

  • Complete and return Revenue Commissioners form HK 1 and submit it to your Revenue Office during or after the year end

  • Your Tax Credits will be increased each week and month to ensure that you pay a reduced rate of tax or alternatively you will recieve a tax rebate at year end to compensate you towards the fees paid to Home Carer Independent Living. 

Self Employed Tax Payer:

Low Income Tax Payer or Unemployed:

  • If you are currently not paying tax due to a low income then it is possible for an employed family member to claim the full tax relief.

  • We can discuss this option with you during a free home consultation.

A full guide to the process is available on the Revenue Commissioners website.
