CAPITAL GAINS
Most properties sold in Israel are exempt from capital gains tax. If the gains are taxable, the net gain is taxed at the standard income tax rates.

The taxable capital gain is computed by splitting the capital gains into its real and exempt inflationary components. The inflationary portion of the gain is computed by applying the Israeli Consumer Price Index (CPI) to the cost of the capital asset. The inflationary portion was charged at 10% on the amount accruing up to 31 December 1993. No tax is levied on the inflationary portion accruing since that date.

Property taxes are no longer levied in Israel.
