Tax Earned on Regular Savings Accounts

We will deduct Deposit Interest Retention Tax (DIRT) at the existing rate from all interest earned, unless you are entitled to exemption from DIRT, and we will pay this directly to the Revenue Commissioners.

If you or your spouse are aged 65 or over in the current tax year, or are permanently incapacitated, and you are exempt from income tax, you may apply to have the interest on the account paid without deduction of DIRT.
