Hi folks, I have been offered a decent redundancy package by my employer. After statutory and SCSB deduction approximately €50,000 will be taxable. If I have no further earnings for this tax year, which I won't as I intend to do a wee bit of travelling, I will be able to claim a tax refund after the end of the year as I won't have used up my tax credits and 20% tax band for the 2nd half of the year. So far so good. However, I would like to get my hands on this sooner if this is possible. So, can I either (a) apply to Revenue as soon as my employment ends, telling them I will have no further earnings this year or (b) get my employer to apply the remainder of my tax credits and 20% band to my final salary payment which will include the taxable portion of the redundancy payment and my accrued holiday pay? Or is there an alternative (c) where I could get my employer to defer €50,000 of the package until the next tax year, at which point I would have a whole new set of tax credits to soak it up. Many thanks in advance for any wisdom that can be shed on this!
