Revenue rules change for paying back tax on PUP in 2021


Workers on the Pandemic Unemployment Payment will be in for a high tax bill if they return to work this year.

The Irish Independent reports those receiving the state support, who manage to secure a job, will see a reduced take-home wage.

People on the payment last year were given the option to pay their income tax bill over 4 years, but this won't be an option this year.

Couples who are jointly assessed will also be hit.
