News: Governmental proposals regarding changes in child tax credit in PL

19_09_2014_grafika2_ceneaCenEA’s Commentary published today (19.09.2014) presents the analysis of consequences of introducing changes in the child tax credit proposed by the Polish goverment.


CenEA’s Commentary presents consequences of introduction of the refundable child tax credit proposed by the Polish government on September 5th. According to our analysis such a change in the tax system will overall cost the budget about 1,5
bn PLN annually. Over 1,5 mn families with children will gain, mainly with low incomes. However, when taking into account the construction of family allowance with point withdrawal of all benefits if net income of a family exceeds a certain level, governmental reform will result in about 67 thousand of families having lower disposable incomes than in current system.


The Commentary (in Polish) is available on CenEA's Opinions and Commentaries page.
The Press Release (in Polish) can be found on CenEA's Press Centre page.

Consequences of the proposal on the amount of the child tax credit depending on the level of income and number of children in the family can be found here.
