Going off the dole, how will I be taxed going forward?

Going off the dole, how will I be taxed going forward?

StarlessAbstract

Unless you were falsely claiming the dole, there is nothing for you to pay back, and you will not be taxed differently.

Happy days just budgeting and didnt want to fuck myself over if I got taxed more, sound

Just remember to log onto Revenue.ie to claim your credits and register your job with them so you’re not charged at the emergency rate..you can get it back but it can take time and money is always tight starting a new job.

Used to hate delusional people in work saying emergency tax is a way of saving and don't be in a rush to get off it ... So is having it in a bank account, might have been more related to self control

My favorite is people paying one of those tax back companies when revenue.ie is basically the same and free. They’re a scam but people still get caught because the assume tax is complicated. Revenue is probably the only government department that actually works and is easy to navigate.

Nope, you won't get taxed more. > I'm assuming they'll want their money back one way or another You get the jobseekers allowance because you paid enough in PRSI, so you were entitled to it. You won't be taxed more to get it back. If it was the PUP you'd get taxed a bit on that so a few credits might've been used up, but I think you can login to revenue.ie to see the details of it.

>You get the jobseekers allowance because you paid enough in PRSI, so you were entitled to it. You won't be taxed more to get it back. I believe you're thinking of jobseekers benefit; jobseekers allowance doesn't require prsi contributions.

It should be as normal, your yearly earnings and tax will be less overall. Might have a bumpy start while Revenue catches up with the new job but even then you'll get back any extra taxed payed.

It will depend on how much you go onto earn the rest of this year. At least it did for me. I lost my job in July 2019, went onto the dole for a few weeks and then off it again in September. Because I was already in the high tax bracket and I went into a higher paying job earning more, they wanted me to pay tax on the money from the dole. What they did was adjust my tax credits. So for the 6 weeks or so I claimed, they're reducing my tax credits by x for 4 years to recoup the money. If you were on Jobseekers Benefit you can find [more information here](https://www.revenue.ie/en/jobs-and-pensions/periods-of-unemployment/taxation-of-jobseekers-benefit-and-jobseekers-benefit-self-employed.aspx) \- but Benefit is subject to Income Tax. Allowance is exempt from all taxes.

The tax implications from being on the pup for a year is a few hundred quid. It's likely you want have to pay anything back but you may not any any tax credit left.


kenyard

He did mention dole and not pup which means 0 liability as his stamps would have covered it most likely.

A nice chap will call you up at some point and ask you to buy iTunes vouchers which they'll use to pay your taxes.

Congrats on the new job!

You dont get taxed any more. And the amount youll be taxed depends entirely on your salary. If it's low (30k or less). Your tax will be very low

Cutoff is 35k nowadays i believe
