The Customs Authority provides discounts or exemption of taxes on shipping household, vehicle purchase and import of business equipment. The Customs regulations are subject to the law; therefore there is less flexibility in special cases. Nevertheless, one can always appeal a decision made by the customs.
All cities and towns in Israel charge Arnona (property tax). Olim are customarily granted a discount of 70-90% on the Arnona payments (for up to 100 sqm.) and are usually entitled to take advantage of this discount during one of the first two years after Aliyah, i.e., for one 12-month period.
The Sal Klita calculator allows you to determine exactly how much money you will be receiving as part of your Sal Klita. This calculator does not cover all possible scenarios; the amount of your Sal Klita is related to your Aliyah status, as determined by The Jewish Agency for Israel. Please be in touch with your Shaliach for further details.
