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).

I hope this answers your question as I understand it. If you need
further clarification, please ask prior to rating this answer!
