Hungary Exempts Mothers Under 30 from Income Tax, Seeks to Boost Births Instead of Migration
Hungary has exempted young mothers from paying income tax as it continues to expand the package of pro-family formation policies it has introduced as an alternative to mass migration.
With most Western and particularly post-communist societies experiencing low birth rates, the consensus among governments of both the left and the supposed “centre-right” has been to try and replenish ageing communities and fill gaps in the labour market through ever-increasing mass legal immigration and a lax approach to controlling illegal immigration.
A small number of countries led by national conservative governments are pursuing an alternative, more long-term approach of supporting (and rewarding) their own citizens in forming families in an effort to boost natural population growth, however, including Poland and, most especially, Viktor Orbán’s Hungary.
