Who can claim?

The home carer’s tax credit may be claimed by a married couple, where one spouse (the Home Carer) cares for one or more dependent persons.  If the home carer earns income of up to €5,080 in his/her own right for the tax year, the full tax credit may be claimed.  With an income greater than €5,080 the credit will be apportioned.

How much can be claimed?

For those of you who have been made redundant and now find yourselves at home taking care of your children, you should be aware that there is a home carer’s credit of up to €900 to avail of.
