The deadline for filing income taxes in Israel will be delayed by eight days so it doesn't coincide with the Passover holiday, the Income Tax Authority said Monday. Tax reports originally meant to be filed by April 15 can now be filed until April 23. Passover this year takes place from the 13th to 19th of April, and tax authority offices will be closed from April 12. People who want to file their VAT and income tax forms during the holiday can do so at their banks or the Income Tax Authority's web site: http://www.mof.gov.il/taxes.
