Dependent Relative Tax Credit in Ireland is one of the most common tax refund option people are not aware of. It seems like we are ignoring the benefits of this scheme. As a matter of fact, most of the taxpayers who are qualified for this claim are totally unaware of it.

Are you someone who looks after a dependent relative?

If YES, you may be also eligible for a credit! In this article, we will walk you through the details about the Dependent Relative Tax Credit in Ireland.

So let’s begin.

What is Dependent Relative Tax Credit (DRTC)?

This is a type of tax credit you can claim for, provided if you are someone who maintains a relative at your own expense. You can claim this credit for your own family member, your civil partner or a spouse relative, etc.

What are the conditions to qualify DRTC?

The family member, your spouse’s or civil partner’s relative you claim for must be:

  • Old aged, who is not capable to maintain themselves
  • Widow father or mother, who is not capable to live for their own
  • Child, who lives with you, who you depend on because of your old age

How much refund you can claim from DRTC?

From 01 January 2021 onwards, you can claim a tax credit of €245 per dependent which is limited to maximum of 5 dependents. The value of this credit was increased in this year’s budget.
