The vast majority of PAYE workers in Ireland miss out on hundreds of euro every year on a relatively unknown tax allowance called Flat Rate Expenses (FRE).

These can be claimed back as a deduction on your income, solely based on a worker’s job description, according to the Irish Mirror

According to taxback.com, only one-third of people claimed allowable expenses in 2013 at a total cost of €70.9million.

The flat rate expense allowances are entirely dependable on one's profession and the tolls that profession takes on their life. 

Shop workers are granted a flat expense rate of €121 per year, while bar trade employees get €97.

Nurses who supply and clean their own uniforms can claim €733, while nursing assistants can claim €526.

Doctors, engineers, plumbers, civil service workers, journalists, waiters, teachers, and members of the carpentry and joinery trades are also entitled to sizeablde deductions. 

However, the highest amount, of a whopping €2,476, can be claimed by members of the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra and RTÉ Concert Orchestra.
