Age Tax Credit

You can claim the Age Tax Credit if you are 65 years or older in the tax year. You can also claim the Age Tax Credit for a couple if you or your spouse or civil partner is over 65, whether you are jointly assessed or separately assessed.

If you are single, widowed, or a surviving civil partner, the Age Tax Credit is €245 per year. If you are married or in a civil partnership, it is €490 for the couple.

You are automatically granted the Age Tax Credit the year you (or your spouse or civil partner) turn 65.

You can claim the credit through myAccount if your Tax Credit Certificate (TCC) does not show the Age Tax Credit. You may need to provide your date of birth if it is not already on your record.
