Income Tax Yield From Farmers

There are approximately 108,000 farmers on record with the Revenue Commissioners and estimates show that approximately €99 million tax was paid on farm profits in 2009, the latest year for which data is available.


Tax from the farming sector accounted for 0.9% of the total income tax-take in 2009. This compares to 89.9% from the PAYE sector and 9.2% from other self-employed.
