Despite being eligible to do so, over 7 in 10 renters have not claimed a €500 tax credit.

That's according to Taxback's most recent Taxpayer Sentiment Survey.

The measure was announced as part of Budget 2023, which allows tenants - paying rent in private accommodation - to claim the credit. estimates approximately 400,000 renters are eligible - 190,000 have claimed to date.

The main reasons given, as to why renters have yet to claim:

  • Not having the chance to do so (21%)
  • Having no way to do so, as landlords have not issued receipts (16%)
  • Being "uncomfortable" to ask landlords for specific information (13%)
  • Landlord not being registered with the Rental Tenancies Board (10%)
