Seriously Donncha how much easier to check your entitlements could it be. If you go to Revenue.ie there’s stacks of info there similarly on Oasis.gov.ie
Personally when I started my job HR told us to check up our entitlements but I know that everyone who started with me hasn’t bothered to get the rental allowance they are entitled to. It’s not because it’s difficult it’s because they’re lazy about it.
I can’t see how the Government could make it any easier to allow people to get their entitlements. As far as I can see all they could do more is actually ring people up and ask them were they doing any of the following and then give them the tax relief. Of course that would cost millions. I don’t want my taxes wasted like that.
If people are too lazy to shop around or too lazy to claim what tax relief they are entitled to they deserve to be ‘ripped off’
