Further to our post Like doing it online?, informing you about Revenue’s introduction of an online version of the Form 12 tax return Revenue have issues the following update:
The eForm 12 2013 was introduced in two phases, with the first phase launched in April 2014 which included the most common income types, credits, allowances and reliefs. The second and final phase was made available on 30 June 2014, and now caters for all incomes, tax credits, allowances and reliefs available on the paper form.
This eForm allows employees, people in receipt of pension income and non–proprietary directors to make a return of income (but not of capital gains), and claim tax credits, allowances and reliefs (including any health expenses) electronically for the year ended 31 December 2013. It can also be used by Agents on behalf of their PAYE clients.
As mentioned in the previous eBrief, a feature of the eForm 12 includes pre-population of data on income and tax credits which helps to make the eForm easier to complete. (Source: Revenue)
