eForm 12

What is eForm 12?

The e-Form 12 is the electronic version of the  Income Tax return 2021 and allows you to complete a return of your income and claim tax credits, allowances & reliefs (including any health expenses) electronically for the year ended 31 December 2021.

Who needs to complete an eForm 12?

It is to be completed by a person whose main source of income is from a PAYE employment or pension or a non-proprietary company director who pays all his or her Income Tax under the PAYE system who has a PAYE income of less than €5,000 per year.

You must file a Form 12 on or before the 31st October of the following tax year if Revenue have asked you to do so. Additionally, if you are not a chargeable person but you want to pay any tax due on your non-PAYE income you can file a form 12.

How to submit an eForm 12

The electronic form is simpler to complete than the paper version. It will include certain important information from your Revenue record to help you complete your Return. You only need to complete the sections of the Form that are relevant to you.
