While there are various deductions that are available in a few situations (for example, there may be deductions for certain payments to provident and pension funds), there are no standard deductions that exist in all scenarios. Since our calculator is meant for the most common scenarios, deductions are not included. However, a personal allowance does exist in the form of a tax credit that varies a little bit according to your filing status. This tax credit helps to directly lower your income tax and is available to all residents.
Non-residents are subject to the same tax brackets and rates, but are not eligible for any personal tax credits.
Under certain circumstances, individual non-residents may be conferred special statuses. One of which is the "Foreign Expert" status. One benefit of this special status, among others, is the ability to deduct additional living expenses so that your taxable income is lower. Another is the "Approved Specialist" status. This status includes the benefits of the "Foreign Expert" status, for a limited time period, and most crucially, allows a maximum cap of 25% on the income tax rate for a period of three years with a possibility of further extensions up to five years. Since this is limited to so few people and also limited in time, our calculator does not include this.
Lastly, many additional tax benefits exist for new immigrants and returning residents. If you qualify, under a strict set of definitions and criteria, benefits include being exempt from Israeli taxation for a period of ten years.
Social Security in Israel
Social security in Israel consists of the national insurance and health insurance.
Contribution rates to the national insurance vary from 0.4% to 7% for residents and 0.04% to 0.87% for non-residents. The exact rate depends on your income and a maximum cap exists on the applicable income.
For health insurance, contribution rates for residents vary from 3.1% to 5% depending on your income. Note that non-residents are not subject to health insurance contributions.
Resident status and income tax in Israel
Residents taxpayers are subject to income tax on their worldwide income while non-resident taxpayers are subject to income tax on only their Israeli-sourced income.
Individuals are classified as residents for tax purposes if their "center of life" is located in Israel. The process for determining one's "center of life" is not straightforward as many factors, among a long list, are reviewed and each individual is considered on a case by case basis. Some of these factors may include staying in Israel for at least 183 days in a calendar year or staying in Israel for 30 days in the current calendar year but having stayed at least 425 days during the most recent three year period.
