The Purchase Tax in respect of residential dwellings is an incremental tax. In order to calculate the tax, the total purchase price of the dwelling is divided into three brackets and a different rate of tax is applied to each bracket, as follows:
The range of each bracket is adjusted every 3 months in sheqel terms in accordance with changes to the Israeli Consumer Price Index and at present is closely equivalent to the following:
A New Immigrant (Oleh) or a Temporary Resident holding a B-1 visa, pays a reduced rate of Purchase Tax equivalent to 0.5% on the first $250,000 (approximately) of the purchase price of a residential property purchased within five years of Immigration (Aliya). On amounts above the first $250,000 the purchase tax rate reverts to 5%.
In the event that the Immigrant wishes to purchase the residence prior to making Aliyah, the reduced rate will also apply if the purchase is made within one year prior to the date of Immigration. In this case, the tax must be paid in full and the excess will be refunded with proof of Aliyah.
