Fine Gael knows the cost of living is still high and that it’s more expensive to do the weekly shop, pay your bills and fuel your car. We want to put more money in your pocket – and one of the ways we are doing that is through the Rent Tax Credit.

If you’re a renter, you’ll be entitled to €500 for 2022 and another €500 for 2023

That’s €1,000 back in your pocket

So, how do you claim the Rent Tax Credit?

All you have to do is follow these simple steps to get up to €1,000 back in your pocket.

If you are a PAYE taxpayer:

  1. Go to
  2. Sign into myAccount
  3. Click on ‘Review your Tax’ and select 2022
  4. Request a ‘Statement of Liability’ and click on ‘Complete your Income Tax Return’
  5. In the ‘Tax Credits & Reliefs’ page select ‘You and your family’ and click on ‘Rent Tax Credit’
  6. Once you’ve completed the form, click ‘Complete’ and submit your Income Tax Return.

If you are self-assessed:

  1. Go to
  2. Sign into ROS
  3. Open the ‘My Services’ screen
  4. Click on ‘File Return’
  5. Select ‘Income Tax’ from the dropdown menu
  6. Select the tax year for which your wish to file a return (select 2022)
  7. Locate the ‘Rent Tax Credit’ section of the tax return and enter the information requested.

In Fine Gael, we understand that the cost of living is rising.

It’s more expensive to do the weekly shop, to fill your car, or to pay your utility bills. So, Budget 2023 is a Cost of Living Budget, designed to help you and your family, with measures for the most vulnerable and the squeezed middle.

In this Budget Fine Gael is:

  • Putting more money back in your pocket by cutting income tax, increasing pension payments, and increasing welfare payments for families, people with disabilities and carers.
  • Helping you and your family with the cost of living in areas like childcare, public transport, the cost of putting a child through school, or saving up for your first home.
  • Backing business by helping companies to pay their energy bills this winter.
  • Helping with the cost of going to college, by both cutting fees and raising the student grant.
  • Building safer and stronger communities by providing more resources to the Gardaí and the Defence Forces who together protect us.
  • Ensuring the best start for every child with major investment in childcare and early education.
  • Putting €2 billion aside this year and €4 billion next year in a Reserve Fund to protect Ireland from unexpected future shocks.

Whatever happens, you can rely on the Fine Gael team to make sure that our economy stays strong, so that we have the resources to continue helping you with the cost of living, and continue investing in vital public services and public infrastructure like housing.
