Tax Relief

41% TAX RELIEF AVAILABLE ON HOME CARE COSTS
In Ireland income tax relief is available to our clients or their relatives at their top rate of tax, subject to conditions. This means that you could receive tax relief of up to 41% of the cost of our service. It is also possible to claim this relief as part of your tax credits and so you receive the benefit as part of your weekly or monthly wages and therefore receive the benefit immediately. Care grants are available from the HSE to help offset the cost of care. If either you or your family are contributing towards the cost of care, and you are a taxpayer, you are entitled to claim up to €50,000 per year at the rate of 41%. This can be shared among family members in relation to individual contributions and can effectively cut the cost of care by nearly half.
