If you live and pay taxes in Hungary, you can offer 1% of your annual income tax to a non-governmental public benefit organisation. Now is the time! You can do it by May 20, whether you are a Hungarian or a foreigner. If your company or accountant takes care of your annual income tax declaration, just tell them that you would like to donate 1% of your income tax to the Hungarian Helsinki Committee (Magyar Helsinki Bizottság) , whose tax number is below.
It has no cost for you, but it offers great help to civil society organisations!
HOW TO OFFER 1% OF YOUR TAX?
The easiest way to donate your 1% is through the “client gateway”.
