Capital gains are usually measured in local currency for tax purposes, and there are provisions for separating the taxable gain into actual and inflationary components. The inflationary amount is equal to the asset’s original cost, minus depreciation (if any), compounded by the percentage rise in the Israeli consumer price index (CPI) from the asset’s acquisition to its selling date. The inflationary sum portion is tax-free if it was earned after January 1, 1994, but it is normally taxed at a rate of 10% if it was earned before that date.

Employment income is considered to be sourced at the location where the relevant work is done under Israeli sourcing laws. As a result, unless a tax treaty exemption is available in compliance with the applicable double tax treaty, employment income obtained by a foreign citizen relating to the employee’s performance of services in Israel will be subject to Israeli taxes (DTT).
Salary, incentives, cost of living allowances, tax equalization grants, and nearly all forms of fringe benefits are all included in the ITO’s concept of taxable work income (including benefits from stock based compensation plans).

The Knesset revised these guidelines in December 2011 and accepted a series of tax law amendments. The corporate tax rate was raised from 24 percent to 25 percent, with a possible increase to 26 percent in 2013. Additionally, for those earning more than NIS 489,480 per year, a new top income class of 48 percent (rather than 45 percent) will be added. People earning more than NIS 1 million a year will pay a 2% surtax on their wages, and capital gains taxes will not be reduced to 20% in 2012, but will stay at 25%.
