Likud’s תשובה: כןThe rich will be paying higher income taxes as of this year. Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz (Likud) signed the new tax regulations in recent days, which levy a 2% surtax on incomes of NIS 800,000 a year. This sum includes taxable income from any source - not just salary - including capital gains, dividends, interest, rents, etc. Steinitz had to sign the new withholding rules, so that now any employee with a monthly salary of over NIS 67,630 will pay the extra 2% starting January 2013. The treasury expects the tax hike to bring in NIS 600 million a year in higher tax revenues.Source

17. The introduction of "rich tax" on those whose income is over a million dollars a year, so that on income in excess of the amount of the top income tax bracket one would pay 55%, which will add 1 billion NIS more to the state revenues.Source
