Tax relief on IT and language courses

Tax relief on IT and language courses

Foreign language and Information Technology (IT) courses

You can claim tax relief on fees that you pay for certain courses in foreign language and IT. You may be the student, or you may pay the fees on behalf of another person.

Conditions for relief

To qualify for relief, your course must be:

  1. a foreign language or IT course
  2. on the list of approved courses
  3. less than two years duration
  4. completed with the award of a certificate of competence, not a certificate of attendance.

Courses in the Irish or English language do not qualify, as these are State languages. Postgraduate courses in foreign languages or IT also do not qualify, but may qualify for tuition fees relief.

Relief

You will receive relief at the standard rate of tax, 20%. Relief is available for the cost of courses where the fees cost between €315 and €1,270.
