The Prime Minister of Hungary, Viktor Orban, has announced that women in Hungary with four or more children will never have to pay income tax. He has unveiled these measures in order to boost the birth rate. He said that this is Hungary’s answer to the challenges rather than immigration.
Orban stated that this was part of a measure to tackle the shrinking population without depending on immigrants. The Hungarian Prime Minister announced a seven-point “Family Protection Action Plan”, designed to promote marriage and families. This is not the first time Orban (who has five children) has tried to bring up such incentives. Earlier , he had introduced a measure that offered families reduced taxes for every new child.
