Bins and Service Charges

Income tax relief is available for individuals who pay a local authority (or somebody operating these services on their behalf) towards bin collection, sewage disposal, or for water charges.

This can be a fixed fee for a period, or for each collection, such as paying by bin tags.

Remember that these charges must be paid in full and on-time for the relief to apply.

Example – Tax Year 2012

Relief is given at the standard rate of tax which is currently 20%. The maximum amount on which you can claim relief is €400, which gives a tax credit of €80 per year.

Do you know, where the service charges are included in a management fee, as is typical in apartment complexes in Ireland, you can still claim a tax refund. Remember to ask your management company to issue you with a separate statement showing the amount of the fee relating to your service charges.
