Waiting for the discount
Do you owe money to the municipality on your arnona (municipal taxes)? Consider waiting a bit before you dash off to find the money. Again this year the municipality, with the backing of the Interior Ministry, will launch a special operation giving large discounts on outstanding arnona debts.

According to figures from the city tax administration, residents and businesses owe the city no less than NIS 5.5 billion – a sum everybody at Safra Square knows will be almost impossible to collect.
