Every year, the Ministry of Finance publishes a statement of tax revenues per capita generated by particular municipalities. In the ranking of the richest municipalities in terms of 2018 inflows, the municipality of Kleszczów in the Łódzkie voivodship (over PLN 31,000 per capita) came first again. Warsaw is in the 32nd place in the ranking. As Gazeta Wyborcza daily wrote, residents in Kleszczów receive, among other things, PLN 4,000 for every baby born, and all students get a PLN 500 monthly scholarship. The unemployed receive PLN 23,000 to start their own business.
The Kleszczów municipality’s coffers are filled with taxes paid by the Bełchatów lignite mine and power plant. The second richest municipality in the ranking is Rząśnia in the same area (with revenues of over PLN 10,000 per capita), which also owes its affluence to the Bełchatów mine. Both municipalities are followed by Kobierzyce (PLN 7,200), Jerzmanów (PLN 7,000) and Polkowice (PLN 6,400).
