The new Newsletter by Ivica Urban entitled Supports for households with children analyses child benefits, a portion of guaranteed minimum benefit intended for children and PIT personal tax allowance for children. The amounts of these supports to households  with children are functions of income. Once these functions are calculated for hypothetical households and their graphs plotted, interesting interdependencies, patterns and irregularities can be noticed in certain supports but also in the set of supports viewed as a whole. The key problem of this set of supports for children lies in the “stepwise” design of the child benefit which creates a situation where a minor change in income leads to major changes in the amount of the child benefit.
