30% of PAYE taxpayers overpaid in 2020


Marian Ryan, Consumer Tax Manager of commented: “The usual suspects of tax credits for medical and dental expenses, Flat Rate Expenses, and tuition fees dominated refunds yet again, but we would expect to see some change in this in 2021, as more people avail of the eWorker relief and perhaps take part in the Stay and Spend Scheme.

“Claiming your tax refund is one of the easiest ways to provide a welcome boost to the coffers, particularly facing into a new year.

“With claims going back over four years, there can be a significant amount to collect, and we would encourage everyone to check their tax status and see what they may be owed from the taxman.”
