Is my Health and Safety Benefit taxable?

Print page

Health and Safety Benefit (including any increases for adult and child dependents) will be reckonable for income tax purposes from 1st July 2013. This Department will continue to pay Health and Safety Benefit directly to recipients without any deduction for tax. To assist in the taxation of Health and Safety Benefit, this Department will notify the Office of the Revenue Commissioners of the taxable amount of Health and Safety Benefit to be taken into account for income tax purposes.

Any enquiries in relation to tax affairs should be directed to your local Tax Office. The phone number and address of the local Tax Office are supplied on the 'Notice of Determination of Tax Credits and Standard Rate cut-off point' form.
