Information Circular No 06/2019: Refund of Motor Tax members proceeding Overseas

By Industrial Relations Officer

It is possible in certain circumstances to claim a refund of motor tax. Your application for a refund should be made directly to your local motor tax office on Form RF120.
Circumstances where you may claim a refund of motor tax include:
• The vehicle has been scrapped/destroyed or sent permanently out of the State
• The vehicle has been stolen and has not been recovered by the owner
• The vehicle has not been taken out or used in a public place at any time since the issue of the current disc
• The owner of the vehicle has ceased, because of illness, injury or other physical disability, to use the vehicle
• The owner of the vehicle has ceased, because of absence from the state for business or educational purposes, to use the vehicle
• The owner of the vehicle has ceased, because of service overseas with the Defence Forces, to use the vehicle
Tax discs must be surrendered immediately as refunds are generally calculated from the first of the month following the surrender of the disc. A minimum of three unexpired whole calendar months must be left on the disc when surrendered.
