The tax year in Ireland runs from 1 January to 31 December.
If you have just moved to Ireland to start work, you will need to apply for a Personal Public Service Number (PPSN).
If you are returning to Ireland, and you have worked here before, you may already have a PPSN.
If you are an employee you pay tax through the Pay As You Earn (PAYE) system. See Starting your first job and Calculating your Income Tax for more information on how to prepare for employment.
You will normally pay Income Tax (IT), Pay Related Social Insurance (PRSI) and Universal Social Charge (USC) on your employment income. See the tax rate band and tax credits sections for more information on what you pay tax on.
If you are self-employed you are taxed under the pay and file system. See A guide to self-assessment to learn how to register for tax and how to pay your tax.
