Do you wish to divide the tax credit between you and your spouse? *
The maximum tax credit for domestic expenses you can claim each year is €2,250. The credit threshold is €100 per person per year. The tax credit for domestic expenses is personal, which means that you can get a total tax credit of €4,500 together with your spouse. If the limit of €2,250 is not exceeded, it is advisable to apply for the tax credit for only one spouse. In that case, the credit threshold amount will be subtracted only once.
