Irish Resident Artist Tax Exemption
If you have produced a painting or sculpture or written a book, play or musical composition then you may be entitled to receive any income from your work tax free. Providing the work is original and creative or has cultural or artistic merit then it should qualify. It is important to note that approval has to be granted by the Irish Revenue Commissioners and only applies from the beginning of the tax year in which you apply. An Irish income tax return still has to be made in the normal manner and you have to be tax resident in Ireland.
Artists thinking of moving to Ireland may apply for an advance opinion in respect of their work and on approval by Revenue Commissioners have to become tax resident in Ireland.
In xxxx the amount of income exempt was capped at €xxxxxx.
We can assist with your application and any accountancy, tax planning matters you would like us to handle for you.
