Review your tax for a previous year - PAYE customers

If you are a PAYE customer, you can review your tax for any of the four previous tax years. You can also request an End of year statement (P21) for each year.

All pay and tax details may not yet be on Revenue’s record for the year you are reviewing. If so, you will need to supply these details from either a P60 or P45 from the relevant employer.

How to review your tax

You can review your tax either by completing a Form 12 or by requesting an End of Year Statement (P21).

You can submit a Form 12 for the year in which you need to make changes to your tax record. This includes claiming for health expenses. If you are jointly assessed, the assessable spouse must complete the Form 12. The non-assessable spouse can submit a Form 12 by choosing to be the assessable spouse for a particular tax year.

You may not need to make changes to your record, apart from the addition of pay, tax and Universal Social Charge (USC) details. If so, you can simply request an End of Year Statement (P21) for the relevant year. If you are jointly assessed, either spouse can make this request.
