In connection with the introduction of the Polish Order, PIT revenues will decrease, so the tax funds received by parents of children with disabilities will also decrease. We wrote about it in Business Insider. The Ministry of Finance reports that thanks to the changes in the Polish Lada, 9 million people will stop paying PIT, including those with the lowest income and about 2/3 of retirees. In addition, 18 million Poles are to pay lower taxes.
– As the research shows, it is this group that most often gave its 1 percent. tax. Low earners and retirees constituted the most reliable group of donors of 1%. Why? I suspect that the reasons are, first of all, low income and understanding of people in need, secondly, the fact that they are often unable to provide support in a different way – says Agnieszka Jóźwicka, mother of the six-year-old Olinek, quoted by “Wyborcza”. was born in a serious condition in the 27th week of pregnancy, and the editor-in-chief of NaRencie.pl.
He adds that low earners are unlikely to make a voluntary donation, they will not take part in the auction of an expensive item. By donating 1 percent. tax, they helped and at the same time did not bear any costs. – Now this opportunity will be taken from them – adds Agnieszka Jóźwicka.
He adds that in her case it will be a difference of at least several thousand zlotys. Not only will he receive less than 1 percent, but we will be able to buy even less, because rehabilitation and equipment have become more expensive. Monthly for the rehabilitation of a child Agnieszka Jóźwicka needs up to 16,000 zloty.
In turn, the Avalon Foundation – last year, the second largest in terms of revenues with 1 percent. – estimates that after the changes and taking into account inflation, this amount may decrease by as much as 10%, i.e. the value of support will drop even by PLN 5-6 million. In 2021, 1 percent. over 53 million zlotys went to the charges of the Avalon Foundation – reports “Wyborcza”.
Disabled people and their carers appeal to the Ministry of Finance to increase 1 percent. up to 1.2 percent Then they will get more influence. You can sign a petition on this. After collecting the appropriate number of signatures, Agnieszka Jóźwicka’s organization plans to submit it to the Minister of Finance.
