This paper focuses on the adjudication of the Polish Constitutional Tribunal regarding the K 21/14 income tax threshold case. The author of this paper has not only discussed and commented on the verdict itself, but has also analysed other documents related to this case: The application and its substantiation, both written by the Ombudsman (Rzecznik Praw Obywatelskich - the official name of this institution used in Poland). A separate part about the reception of this judgment by the Polish media is also included. Additionally, the author has presented his own point of view, and proposed his own methods of solving this profound matter. This text was originally written soon after the verdict was made publicly available, and was later improved and re-written.
