How long will I be on Emergency Tax?

You will be taxed on an emergency basis where your employer has not received a Revenue Payroll Notification (RPN).

This may occur where:

  • you have not provided your employer with a Personal Public Service Number (PPSN)
  • you have not registered your first employment with Revenue. 

If you have worked in Ireland previously, you should provide your employer with your PPSN. Your employer can then request an RPN from Revenue in order to make the correct deductions from your pay. 

If you have no PPS number you will also be on Emergency Tax and may move to a Week 1/Month 1 (W status) once you receive a PPS number.
