Paternity Leave and Parental Leave

One Parent Family Tax Credit

One Parent Family Tax Credit

The Single Person Child Carer tax credit has been replaced by One Parent Family tax credit since January 1st 2014. This tax credit of €1650 is granted in addition to the single person tax credit to a person who has a qualifying child residing with him or her for the whole or greater part of the year. The person in receipt of the Single Person Child Carer tax credit is also entitled to an increased SRCOP of €36,800. Tax credits reduce the amount of tax that you have to pay.

The Single Parent Credit is not available to any person who is married, in a civil partnership, jointly assessed for tax purposes as a married person

The main difference between the Single Person Child Carer Credit (SPCCC) and the One-Parent Family Credit is that both parents could claim a OPFTC if the child or children lived with them for part of the year. Only one parent can claim the SPCCC in a tax year.
