Tax rebate = (pensions income less 10,500) multiplied by 15% (with a rebate capping of €405).

Example: Pension income €13100 - €10,500 =€2,600 * 15% = €390.

The tax rebate amounts to €390.

 

3. In the case of an individual who is chargeable to tax at the married rates, a tax rebate shall be allowed as a set-off against the tax on his chargeable income, as follows:

Tax rebate = (pensions income less 12,700) multiplied by 15% (with a rebate capping of €75).

The additional tax rebate amounts to €60.

The total amount of tax rebate that this individual may claim is €135 (€75 + €60).
