Support culture through your Tax declaration

Support Culture at no cost to you

Since 2017, all taxpayers can support the cultural sector by assigning 0.5% of their Personal Income Tax (IRS) to a cultural entity of their choice, without any personal cost. The State will return 0.5% of the Tax, which you would pay regarding the IRS, to an Entity of your choice.

The Tax and Customs Authority (ATA) publishes annually, on its electronic declarations page (up to the first day of the tax return submission deadline), the list of all entities that can benefit from the tax consignment.

The Gabinete de Estratégia, Planeamento e Avaliação Culturais(GEPAC) of the Ministry of Culture is responsible for transmitting to the ATA (until December 31st of the year concerning the collection to be assigned) the list of the new eligible entities.
