PAYE taxes


I’m a PAYE worker. What income tax will I pay in 2022?


Your income is taxed at 20% up to a certain amount. This is known as the standard rate of tax and the amount of income that it applies to is the standard rate tax band.

If you have income above the standard rate tax band, it is taxed at the higher rate of tax, which is 40%.

There were no changes to tax rates in 2022, but the standard rate tax bands were raised by €1,500.
