Jerusalem salutes IDF reservists with property tax discounts of up to 25%
In line with a regulation issued by the Interior Ministry, those serving as commanders will be eligible for the 25% discount
On Thursday, October 27, the mayor of Jerusalem, Moshe Leon, decided that in line with the regulation issued by the Interior Ministry on October 25, city residents serving as commanders in the IDF reserves will be eligible for a property tax discount of 25%.
It followed the mayor's announcement that city residents serving in the reserves will be entitled to a 5% discount on property tax.
The decision will be submitted to the City Council for approval, and after the approval the discount will be applied retroactively from January 2022 for all commanders in the reserves.
The Municipality of Jerusalem will retroactively update the discount based on a list it receives from the Defense Ministry.
Mayor Moshe Lion said "It is a privilege for me to acknowledge, even to a small extent, the great contribution of those currently serving in the reserves. The Interior Ministry has allowed every municipality to decide the amount of the discount that it wishes to give commanders in the reserves, and we have chosen to give the maximum, 25%, to all IDF commanders in the reserves who live in the city."27/10/2022
