Close to 1.2 million Hungarians donated a fraction of their personal income tax to charities and churches this year, 10% more than in 2020, Deputy Finance Minister András Tállai told MTI.
Hungarians may choose to donate 1% of their PIT to a charity and 1% to a church without any loss to their income.
Tállai said Hungarians could have potentially donated more than HUF 40 billion to charities by making an indication on their PIT returns.
Last year, charities could have been the recipients of HUF 40.7 bln in donations, but taxpayers' indications on PIT returns added up to just HUF 18.6 bln.
