Jerusalem24 – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu insists on refusing to pay tax to the state for the expenses of his personal home, in the city of Qesarya. In addition to that house, Netanyahu also resides in the official home of the heads of the Israeli government, in Jerusalem.
On Saturday evening, the Israel Tax Authority reported that it had approached the accountant of the Presidency of the Government in recent weeks, and asked him to know Netanyahu’s expenditures, which of them were spent in the performance of his position, and which ones were for his own personal expense.
According to the information, the Presidency of the Government responded that all expenditures, including expenses for personal and private households in Qesarya, are used as part of Netanyahu’s performance of his post.
According to the mechanism announced by Israel to the so-called Israeli Supreme Court three years ago, it is mandated to pay Netanyahu’s expenses if they are in order to perform his position, and if the expenses are for his own expense, then Netanyahu must pay them personally.
In 2011, 2012 and 2013, Israel funded the expenses of Netanyahu’s personal home, with a value of more than 52 thousand dollars, and in 2014 more than 81 thousand dollars, and in 2015 more than 85 thousand dollars. In addition to refusing to pay the personal home’s expenses, Netanyahu also refuses to pay taxes for these expenses.
From 2016 until today, the authorities, with the support of the court, have refused to disclose the value of Netanyahu’s personal financing in Qesarya.
