Deadline approaches for pension contributions

If you're filing your 2008 tax return and paying your tax online using Revenue's online service www.ros.ie you have until November 16th to do so. You can reduce your tax bill by making a pension contribution before you make your tax return and backdating the tax relief on the pension contribution against your 2008 tax liability.

For high earners, this is the final opportunity to claim tax relief on pension contributions up to the 2008 income ceiling of €275,239. The income ceiling has been reduced for the 2009 tax year to €150,000.
