Grants, awards or prizes
You may receive grants, awards or prizes for your artistic work. These are generally taxable as income. However, if the payments relate to a work that has qualified for Artists' exemption, they may be tax exempt. Any exemption is subject to the maximum amount of €50,000 per year.
If you have been granted Artists’ Exemption, the following payments qualify as exempt income:
- Arts Council bursaries when paid directly to you by the Arts Council
- Cnuas payments made under the Aosdána Scheme
- payments from the sale of qualifying works abroad which fall within the guidelines
- residencies when paid directly to you by the Arts Council for the purposes of producing a qualifying work.
Residencies which relate to teaching art or a similar type of practice are not exempt.
