File a tax return: Form 12 for PAYE customers

What is the Form 12 return?

The Form 12 in myAccount is the electronic version of the paper Form 12. It allows you to complete a return of your income and claim tax credits, allowances and reliefs for the year ended 31 December. It is easier to complete than the paper version. Important information from your Revenue record is included in the online Form 12 to help you complete it.

Who is the Form 12 for?

You should complete a Form 12 if you want a review of your taxes and there are changes needed to your record.

Also, each year, a number of PAYE taxpayers are requested to complete a Form 12 by the due date (31 October). The facility to request an End of year statement (P21) is not available to these customers.

How to access the Form 12 return

You can access this in myAccount by following these steps:

  • click on 'Review your tax' link in PAYE Services
  • select the Form 12 for the relevant tax year.

[1]  The eForm 12 does not allow you to return details for Capital Gains Tax (CGT). You will need to complete a separate CGT return for that purpose.
