Students don’t claim back tax

Students and school pupils with a small part-time job are failing to claim back at least €25m in overpaid tax, according to research by the youth wing of the FNV trade union federation.

Half of the 1.2 million youngsters with a holiday job are not aware they can claim back tax, which can mount up to some €50 each, the FNV says.
