Israel Tax Brackets (2017-2019)

Income tax for workers in Israel since the 1st of January, 2017

Income tax in Israel is deducted automatically by employers (Unless the worker is self-employed). 
Israel workers pay the income tax by depending on the height of the salary. Workers with higher salaries pay more taxes, and a larger portion of their salary is deducted as a tax. 
The minimum tax stands on 10% for a salary of up to 6240 NIS. That means that for every NIS of salary to this amount, a worker will pay 10% of his salary as a tax. 

So if my salary is 6000 NIS, 10% is deducted, which comes down to 5600 NIS net salary. 
If a workers salary is above 6240 NIS, then for every NIS above this bracket, and until the next one (8950 NIS) he'll pay 14%. 
So, a worker with a gross salary of 8000 NIS will pay 6240 * 10% + (8000 - 6240 ) * 14%, which comes to 888 NIS and will get a net salary of 7112 NIS.

* Please note that this explanation only regards the income tax. Workers also have to pay Social Security tax, Health Tax, and Pension.
