Understanding Tax Credits – Age Tax Credit

A person may claim the age tax credit when he is 65 years or over at any time in the income tax year.  The age tax credit for the current year is €245.  Where, one spouse or civil partner in a marriage or civil partnership is 65 years or over at any time during the income tax year, the age tax credit is doubled to €490 for the current year.
