Some 100,000 file papers for family tax rebates
By noon on Tuesday, some 100,000 Hungarians have filled out forms with the necessary personal data to receive tax rebates next February, Finance Ministry state secretary András Tállai told news agency MTI.
Hungary's government earlier decided that parents raising children will get around HUF 600 billion as a personal income tax rebate next year.
Citizens will get payments automatically, but those eligible for childcare allowances who do not get the family support themselves need to submit a form to the National Tax and Customs Authority (NAV) this year.
Eligible recipients do not have to do anything if NAV already knows their domestic bank account number or postal address from childcare allowance payment data.
Tállai said NAV has also received some 165,000 online queries to see if taxpayer data was all in order for paying the rebates.
