In Ireland, income tax relief is available to clients of HCCI providers, or their relatives, at their top rate of tax subject to certain conditions.
This means that you could receive tax relief of up to 40% of the cost of a provider’s service. It is also possible to claim this relief as part of your tax credits which would mean receiving the benefit as part of your weekly or monthly wages.
If you are not working or paying tax, you can still receive this relief from other members of your family up to a total of €75,000 at their marginal tax rate.
To learn more about for tax relief, please review Revenue’s IT 47 Leaflet “Employed Person Taking Care of an Incapacitated Person” and then complete the HK1 form “Claim for an Allowance for Employing a Carer”.
