Joint Assessment is a tax arrangement in Ireland that allows married couples or couples in a civil partnership to combine their income and claim their tax credits and reliefs in a unified way. Rather than filing separate tax returns, couples can opt to pool their income, deductions, and allowances, providing a holistic view of their financial situation. This can lead to a range of benefits that contribute to a more harmonious financial landscape.
