Filing of claims for Negative Income Tax Print   Back >>
As part of the law aimed at increasing the percentage of participation in the work force and reducing the social gaps (negative income tax), the Tax authority will open a new service: filing of claims for Negative Income Tax in selected postal units throughout Israel (Hebrew). The purpose of the service is to enable payment of the grant to the population of beneficiaries meeting the criteria set by la (henceforth: the “grant”).
As part of this service, every citizen who is a resident of Israel and resides in the defined areas can submit a request to receive a grant from the Tax Authority. Examination of entitlement will be conducted by the Tax Authority.

The Law was officially published on the 27th of December 2007, and it will be implemented in stages. During the first stage, over the course of 2008 and 2009, the grant will be paid for actual work months during the tax tears 2007 and 2008 only to workers who are “residents of the combined areas” as defined by the law.

As of 2009, the grant will also be paid for actual work months during the 2008 tax year to self employed workers who are “residents of the combined areas” as defined by the law.

In the second stage, from 2010 onwards, the grant will be paid to the entire population of employed and self employed workers.

Every year, requests will be filed only for the previous year, and the request forms can be submitted until the end of the year.

According to a government resolution, in 2008 only requests by citizens who were residents of one of the following areas will be accepted: Jerusalem, Ashkelon, Nazareth, Nazareth Elite, Hadera, Pardes Hanna-Karkur, Mishmarot, Ein Iron, Arara, Kefar Pines, Kefar Kara, Or Akiva, Ein Maáhal, Baka Gat, Netanya and the local council of Basma (Moawriya, Barta and Ein a Sala).
Every citizen can file only one request. Identification of the customer filing the request will be based solely on an ID card.
Submission of a request will be carried out only by the grant requester, with an ID card, and only when he/she is present in person at the postal unit. A request cannot be submitted via a proxy or any party other than the requester him/herself.
The request submitter must enter a postal unit in person and submit the following documents to the post clerk:

1. His/her ID card.
2. A check with the customer’s details printed on it: name and ID number must be identical to the details listed on the customer’s ID card. It is possible that more than one name be listed on the check, but in such a case the bank account must also be in the name of the request submitter.
3. Instead of a personal check, it is possible to present an official document from a Bank Manager stating that the customer manages an account in a private bank. The document will include the name of the customer, account number, and details of the bank and branch.

For clarifications and questions related to entitlement and the status of a request after it was submitted, please call the Tax Authority Call Center at *4954.
