Are You Due a PRSI Refund?

There was a fair bit of publicity recently surrounding a news story that the State has refunded €10 million to taxpayers who were overcharged in 2010. We've had several calls about this.

Just to be clear - this relates to the Health Levy. If your overall income in 2010 was less than €26,000 you were exempt from the Health Levy. If you earned more than €500 in one week in a PAYE employment, the Health Levy would have been deducted for that week.

So anyone who earned more than €500 in a week during 2010 AND earned a total of less than €26,000 for the year should reclaim their Health Levy.
