Most reservists are PAYE taxpayers and will access their information via Revenue’s myAccount platform. This is a guide for those who don’t yet have access to myAccount and wish to set up an account.



myAccount is a single access point for all Revenue's secure online services. It is the quickest, easiest and most convenient way for you to manage your tax affairs.


Registering for myAccount

On the Register for myAccount screen you will be asked for a number of details. Once you have input these details, revenue will match them with their records.

If the details match you will be issued with a temporary password either by text, email or post. Once you have your temporary password, you are ready to use myAccount.

Please note that the temporary password is only valid for a certain period of time:

  • Text or email - expires after 1 hour.

  • Post – expires 21 days from the date of the letter.


You will have to create a new password when you log in to myAccount for the first time. Please keep your password safe and secret.

Do not be concerned if your details fail to match immediately. Revenue will do their best to resolve matters for you. If needs be, they will contact you by phone to help sort out any problems with your registration.


What you need to register for myAccount

You must provide the following information at registration:

  • Your Personal Public Service Number (PPSN).

  • Your date of birth.

  • Your mobile number or landline number.

  • Your email address.

  • Your home address.


If you can provide two of the following pieces of information, and revenue can verify this information immediately, they will send a temporary password by either text or email:

  • Irish driving licence number.

  • Information from your P60. This document is provided by your employer at the end of the tax year.

  • Details from an Income Tax Notice of Assessment, or acknowledgement of self-assessment.


Where it is not possible to verify this information immediately, the temporary password will be issued to you by post.



Forgotten Passwords


If you have forgotten your myAccount password, you can click on the ‘Forgot Password?’ link on the myAccount sign-in screen. They will issue a new temporary password immediately in many cases.



What if I’m Self-Employed?


Self-Employed reservists do not use myAccount and should instead register for ROS at the following link:
