Paying tax under the self-assessment system

In 2016, if you file your tax return online using the Revenue Online Service (ROS), the due date is extended to 10 November 2016. To avail of this extended deadline, you must file the 2015 Form 11 return and make the appropriate payment through ROS for:

  1. Preliminary Tax for 2016, and
  2. Income Tax balance due for 2015

Where only one of these actions is completed through ROS, the extension does not apply and the required date to submit returns and payments is 31 October 2016.

You can find more information about completing your income tax return on the Revenue website.
