Hi lisanne, The Jizya (or poll tax) is a tax found in Moslem states which is levied on non-Moslem (non-believers). All capable non-Moslem citizens of the State contribute to the general welfare of the State by the means of this tax in much the same way as Moslems contribute to the welfare of the State by means of the Zakat (or Alms Tax). http://www.unn.ac.uk/societies/islamic/war/war6.htm I hope this answers your question as I understand it.
