KELA support and Tax

Post by bd_tkk » Sat Apr 08, 2017 8:30 pm

Dear people,

I have some questions regarding tax:

Is there any special kind of tax for KELA support (32.68x20 € per month)? If there is what kind of tax is that?
If there is no such special tax, why they are taking 20% tax from me for such a small amount?

If this 20% is higher than the tax I should pay from my kela support (32.68x20 € per month), will they give me the extra tax back?

Does the housing benefit include taxation as well?


I wish you all a nice weekend.

Of course there is tax, and for free money is actually higher than for money you get as salary. 20% is minimum they will take for any benefits money.

20% is their default withholding percentage for certain types of benefits. The final taxation rate can be lower.
