A guide to self-assessment
How do you know what to pay?
Income Tax (IT)
When you complete your IT return using Revenue Online Service, the tax you must pay will be calculated and shown to you. This calculation will form the basis of your self-assessment.
You may submit your IT return on a paper Form 11. If you do, Revenue will send you a notice of assessment. The notice of assessment will show the amount of tax you must pay.
Capital Gains Tax (CGT)
You must work out the amount of CGT you owe, see How to calculate CGT to help you do this.
