Donating 1.5% of Tax to Public Benefit Organizations in Poland

Share this page


Polish taxpayers now have the option to donate 1.5% of their tax to Public Benefit Organizations (PBOs), instead of just 1%. This change was introduced in 2022 as part of the Polish Order. Donating 1.5% costs nothing and does not burden taxpayers in any way, but it provides crucial financial support to PBOs.

In legal terms, 1.5% of tax is funds that belong to the tax office. If this amount is not transferred to a PBO, taxpayers will have to give it back anyway, and the tax office will receive it. By donating 1.5% of their tax to PBOs during PIT (Personal Income Tax) settlement, taxpayers are not losing anything, but rather sharing the money that would have gone to the tax office.

It is important to note that the transfer of 1.5% of tax is not considered a donation and cannot be deducted from income. However, it greatly benefits PBOs and supports their activities.

Donating 1.5% of tax to a PBO is easy and can be done regardless of the method of settlement with the tax office. Taxpayers can perform this action manually by entering the number of the PBO in the National Court Register and the amount to be transferred in the appropriate PIT field. Alternatively, they can use a free tool such as the PIT program or the e-service Your e-PIT.

In summary, donating 1.5% of tax to PBOs in Poland is a simple and effective way to support important causes without any additional burden on taxpayers.
