Review your tax for a previous year - PAYE customers

If you are a PAYE customer, you can review your tax for any of the four previous tax years. 

How to review your tax for 2019 and subsequent years

You can view a preliminary End of Year Statement in myAccount.

This is a preliminary calculation only. It will show if you have paid the correct amount of tax and Universal Social Charge (USC) for the year. It is based on the information held on Revenue's records. If you wish to receive a Statement of Liability, you must complete an Income Tax Return. This applies even if you do not wish to claim additional credits or make changes to your tax record.

How to review your tax for 2018

You can review your tax either by completing an Income Tax Return or by a Statement of Liability.

You can submit an Income Tax Return for the year in which you need to make changes to your tax record. This includes claiming for health expenses.

You may not need to make changes to your record, apart from the addition of pay, tax and USC details. If so, you can simply request a Statement of Liability for the relevant year. If you are jointly assessed, either spouse can make this request.

For all years, if you are jointly assessed, the assessable spouse must complete the Income Tax Return. The non-assessable spouse can submit an Income Tax Return by choosing to be the assessable spouse for a particular tax year.
