It’s not a big deal to you, but it could mean tremendous help to others. By donating 1% of your personal income tax, you may financially support organisations which contribute a lot to the Hungarian LGBTQ+ community. Note that the deadline for submitting your declaration is 20 May 2020.
What exactly is this about?
Taxpayers may allocate 1% of their personal income tax to registered foundations since 1996. From 1997, another 1% of personal income tax can be donated to a recognised church identified by a technical number. Based on statistical data of last years however, only every other taxpayer opts to make the 1%+%1 declaration.
How can you make the declaration?
The easiest way is filing the declaration online on webpage eszja.nav.gov.hu/. To use this service, you must have a government gateway registration. In this case you just need to make a few clicks to choose the foundation you wish to support.
If you don't have government gateway registration, it’s possible to file the declaration offline, in paper. For this, we recommend using the services of the eSZJA portal that do not require registration. Here you can fill in the declaration form in your web browser and after printing the document, you can post it to the tax authority. For further information on the allocation of 1%+1%, please visit this page (Hungarian only).
Who to support?
You can find the official list of foundations and organisations with technical numbers (churches) that are eligible for the donation here (Hungarian only). Below we highlight the name and tax ID number of a few LGBTQ+ organisations (note this list is not intended to be exhaustive).
