Paying taxes in Hungary

Paying taxes in Hungary
You need to pay taxes if you have a job in Hungary or you receive any other income from anyone in Hungary.

If you study at ELTE with a Hungarian governmental scholarship, (e.g., Stipendium Hungaricum students) you are required to apply for a Tax Card after your arrival in Hungary. Keep in mind that you will not receive your scholarship until your tax ID number is registered in Neptun. You need to request a Tax Card in person at the National Tax and Customs Administration (Nemzeti Adó- és Vámhivatal). Read carefully about how to apply for a Tax Card when you start your studies at ELTE.

For more information on tax obligations for foreigners, please visit the official site of the National Tax and Customs Administration.
