Under the Irish government's Rent A Room scheme you can rent out a spare room in your house, Tax Free, if the income does not exceed 14,000 each year. This extra income could supplement your mortgage repayments, or you could go on that long overdue holiday!
For information, including rights and obligations as a landlord, effects of rental income on social welfare payments, rules, and how to apply, visit the Citizen¿s Information Board or read Irish Revenue¿s A Revenue Guide to Rental Income - IT 70.
