Tax Clearance for Irish Citizenship Applications
The Department of Justice has recently confirmed that from the 23rd of November 2020, anyone who applies for Irish Naturalisation must also submit an up to date Tax Clearance Certificate as part of the supporting documentation.
Applications can apply for the Tax Clearance Certificate Here.
It is evident that a Tax Clearance Certificate is a document which is issued by the Irish Revenue Commissionaires confirming that a person has no tax liabilities at the time that the certificate is issued. A copy of the Tax Clearance Certificate or the Tax Clearance Access Number issued by the Revenue Commissioners must be submitted as part of the application supporting documentation.
A Tax Clearance Certificate is also required for applicants who are residing outside of the State. A key example is if a spouse of an Irish citizen who is residing in the North of Ireland and applying for Irish citizenship.
If it is a case where you are unable to obtain a Tax Clearance Certificate in the jurisdiction in which you are living, you will alternatively need to submit confirmation of tax compliance in whatever equivalent format is issued by the authorities of that country.
