Women with four or more children will be exempted from the personal income tax from next January on, the state secretary in charge of youth and family affairs announced on Wednesday.
Katalin Novák told a press conference that the life-long benefit will also apply to women whose children have grown up already and also to ones who have agreed to have at least four children in future.
The government measure will benefit some 40,000 mothers, Novák added.
