Tax Rates

If you receive a gift, you may have to pay Gift Tax on it. If you receive an inheritance following a death, it may be liable to Inheritance Tax. Both these taxes are types of Capital Acquisitions Tax (CAT).

Capital Acquisitions Tax is charged at 33% in respect of gifts or inheritances made on or after 8 December 2012 (the rate was formerly 30%). This only applies to amounts over the group threshold.


If you have received gifts from your parents with a taxable value of €550,000, you only pay tax on the amount over the appropriate group threshold (Group A threshold: €225,000). So €325,000 is taxed at 33%.
