In order to deduct the correct tax from your salary, you will need to apply for a Certificate of Tax Credits (Form 12A). Please go to www.revenue.ie to download the Form 12A.
The Form 12A should be submitted as soon as possible to minimise the risk of ‘emergency tax’ at 42%. Emergency tax is applied in cases where your tax credits are unclear. If emergency tax is initially applied, the appropriate reimbursements will be made to you as soon as your tax situation is clarified.
Both the employee and the University of Limerick will be notified of tax credits. The University will make the necessary tax deductions from your salary.
