    Hello everyone!

    I want to invest in US stocks
    I want to create a portfolio-based by dividend growth.
    I am very confused about the dividend tax in Ireland, how much should I pay tax for dividends to Revenue??

    Thanks!

    Dividend taxes are treated under your regular income tax bracket.

    It's just regular income, so depends on what you're earning in your day job.Say you get a dividend for €500, you go to Revenue online service, and declare it. If you're earning more than €35k you'll likely be paying 40% on the dividend (so €200 tax).

    I find most of the time when I log it, they just tell me they'll deduct if from next year's tax bill (reduces your credits next year.

    I have one dividend stock, which generates 2 dividends a year, I log it as I recieve it, so I have the cash in case the taxman wants it immediately.
