Hi my wife and I are landlords. I work full time and my wife is unemployed at the moment. This year we have earned over €5,000 each from rent. I will continue to pay class j prsi as normal. As my wife is gone over the €5,000 she would be liable to pay the minimum prsi contribution of €500 class s. When rent is your only income you pay class s.
My question is will she have to pay the €500 as she is currently getting jobseekers benefit and therefore the rent is not her only income.
If someone on jobseekers benefit is considered an insured employee i.e. get prsi credits then I think she won't have to pay the €500 this year.
As she will have the full 52 prsi from benefit and signing on.
Thanks in advance
