Who can claim?
This is a credit for all newly weds. Year of marriage credit is very often not claimed and as a result thousands of euro go unclaimed each year.
In the year of marriage both spouses continue to be taxed as two single persons. However, if the tax you pay as two single persons in that year is greater than the tax which would be payable if taxed as a married couple, a refund of the difference can be claimed.
How much can be claimed?
A refund of tax for the year of marriage would normally only arise where a couple are taxed at different tax rates
and one spouse could benefit from the unused standard rate cut-off point (20%) or from the unused tax credits
of the other spouse.
