Each of you who donated money or helped in other ways (materially) for the Church in Poland can get this bonus. You can apply for an amount that is in total no more than 6% from your income.
You will need to attach a confirmation of donation. If you transferred money, attach a bank statement or confirmation of payment, where your information and the information of the receiver is written.
If you donated something else (for example furniture, electronics, liturgical items etc.) you will need to attach a confirmation of purchase or the document, where the value of that item is written, and a confirmation that the Church received your gift.
You can receive 760 PLN per year together with your tax refund, if you apply for an internet bonus.

Either way, your paid invoices are necessary.
If you paid more than 760 PLN per year, you will still receive only 760 PLN, if you paid less you need to enter the correct amount. Please know that an installation of the internet, updating or repairing the connection are not included in this limit!
