How does the Hungarian tax system affect income inequality?


Who are the winners and losers of the current Hungarian tax system? How much are we taxed compared to our Slovak and Austrian neighbours? What are the advantages and disadvantages of flat tax systems?

In our study (in Hungarian) commissioned by the Polgár Foundation for Equal Opportunities, we examined the functioning of the Hungarian tax system in terms of the redistribution between poor and rich taxpayers, and between childless taxpayers and those having children.

The non-technical summary of the study is available in English here.
