One of the most unclaimed credits I have come across has to be Home Carer’s Tax Credit. You can claim a tax credit of €810 if you are married & one of you is a stay at home parent.

The small print is you must be in receipt of Child Benefit & one of you doesn’t earn over €5,000 per year. If you meet these criteria then you are entitled to €810 credit.

This tax credit spread across all sectors & is not exclusively for parent of kids with special needs. Like all credit you can back claim for four years & to apply contact your local Social Welfare Office.

Potentially you can earn €3,240 (€810 *4-yrs) for a few minutes work!
