Individuals who both pay and file their tax returns through the Revenue On-line Service (ROS) have until Tuesday 12th November 2019 to pay a pension contribution and elect to backdate the income tax relief against the 2018 tax year. Those who do not qualify for the ROS extension must do this by 31st October 2019.
There is no option to defer. If they do not take this opportunity, they will not get another chance to reduce their 2018 income tax liability.
