Filing Israeli Taxes - FREE Help is Available!


Every year, many of us have to file a yearly tax report with the Israel Tax Authority.

Many, many people pay an accountant to handle this report, but did you know that in some cases you can also get FREE help?

Here's the deal:

The Israel Tax Authority runs Free Clinics for Atzma'im with income from self employment up to 60,000 NIS using Form 137, and other people who need to file a tax report using Form 1301.

Find this help HERE:


Every Regional Tax Office (except Eilat and Tel Aviv - details below), until July 9, 2020, Sunday - Thursday from 1pm - 6:00pm. Some offices may be closed on certain days of the week. I recommend calling before you go to verify they are open!

In Eilat, the clinic will be available only on Mondays and Wednesdays. In Ashdod and Rishon Letzion the clinic is available on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

In Tel Aviv, there is a special Resource Center dedicated just to this service, and it will remain open until July 29, 2020. Find it at Rechov Shefa Tal 12, Tel Aviv.



Good luck, and don't wait to do your taxes! Better just to get it done with, right?

NOTE: The Tax Authority is not offering assistance with other issues at these clinics. They are ONLY for getting help filing your yearly tax report.

Great Resource - The Jerusalem Market

partner promotion

I just found out about this great new website, The Jerusalem Market, and I am so happy to be able to introduce them to you all. 

English speakers in Jerusalem - this site is FOR YOU! This is THE place to buy and sell things in Jerusalem. You can list anything you want to sell, from the smallest item to a whole household's worth of furniture. You don't need to code or do anything difficult to make your listing - they'll take care of putting up your listing for you once you contact them. They make it easy and FREE to list your item - just fill out a form or send them a whatsapp.

If you're buying a small item, they have a partner who will deliver it to you for a flat rate of 20 NIS, to most parts of the capital city. If you buy a large item, they have delivery options too! (Delivery is at the buyer's expense - but it's a super convenient option. I know I've bought furniture and then seriously struggled to figure out how to get it home. This way you won't get stuck standing in the street with a dresser - been there, done that!)

They have even figured out a way to reach the people who don't browse online: they send a weekly catalog including EVERY ITEM listed on their site by email to their mailing list! Those people can then contact the sellers, too!

So if you're looking to reach a wider market with things you're selling, The Jerusalem Market is where you need to be.

They also offer really reasonable premium packages for upgraded listings.

Here's a screenshot of some items listed there right now - you can see that people are selling everything you can imagine! This looks like a great way to get a Jerusalem bargain and an eco-friendly purchase, as there are a lot of people who buy nice things and then they end up moving or leaving the country not long after. This is a great way to save some resources! 

So if you're looking to buy something and Jerusalem is convenient for you, you should totally add The Jerusalem Market to your list of places to look!

Vegan Chocolate Chip Squares

I baked some cookies. I mean cookie bars. Chocolate chip squares. Whatever name you prefer.

The kind of thing you bake when you need cookies around the house but you don't have any intention of actually taking the time to shape cookies...

Do I need an excuse about why? I don't think I do! After all, we all have the same excuse. It's the middle of a global pandemic. I needed cheering up. There were no snacks on hand.

See, I have plenty of excuses!

Anyhow I just wanted to share some virtual cookies with all of you!


Enjoy!

These are vegan.

Recipe:

2 T. chia seed, soaked in 2/3 cup water
1/2 cup oil
1.5 cups demarrara sugar (what I had on hand, use the sugar you prefer)
splash of vanilla extract
2 cups white spelt flour
dash of salt
1 tsp baking soda

1/2 bag mini chocolate chips

I mixed it all together in a big bowl, chocolate chips at the end, and spread it out on a large cookie sheet.

Baked at 180 C for about 20 minutes, it could have been a bit more. 
I'm really not a scientist, sorry.

Cut into squares, and eat them... probably best to share them with your family! 

(Great with coffee!)

Catch ya later!
