Between January 1, 2019 and September 27, 2019, the tax office has detected about 75,000 so-called "red-flag" taxpayers, meaning they tried to illegally access a social security service.
The tax office’s investigation revealed that the persons concerned did not pay a total health care contribution of HUF 6.6 billion, the ministry said. One of the aims of the Social Security Bill is to automatically filter out free-riders who use unauthorized healthcare services, writes adozona.hu.
The ministry said in a statement that the bill could be approved by Parliament next week. The draft will enter into force on July 1, 2020.
