Starting your first job
What you should do
Register for Income Tax
When you start working for the first time, you need to register your job as soon as possible. This is to avoid paying emergency tax. You must do this even if your job is part-time or temporary.
To do this, you must:
Register your new job
When you receive your myAccount password, you will be able to register your new job. To register, click on the ‘Update job or pension details’ link in ‘PAYE Services’ in myAccount. We will work out the tax credits that you can claim.
View your Tax Credit Certificate (TCC)
You will be able to view your TCC within two working days. To view your TCC, click on the ‘Manage your tax’ link in ‘PAYE Services’ in myAccount. You can also view your TCC in myDocuments at the top of the home page in myAccount.
Revenue will send your employer a copy, known as a Revenue Payroll Notification (RPN), showing your total tax credits and rate bands. Your employer can then make the correct tax deductions from your pay.
