If the spouse or parent of an employee is resides in a special institution, the employee is entitled to a tax reduction.

  • The credit is a deduction from the portion of income tax the employee is obligated to pay based on his income
  • The credit is equal to 35% of the difference between the amount paid for the spouse/parent to live in the institution, and the obligatory 12.5% of income paid by the applicant.
Example
Someone paid 60,000 NIS for his father to live in an institution. The son's taxable income is 160,000 NIS for that income tax year.

12.5% of his income is 20,000 NIS (160,000 X 12.5%).

The deduction amount the son will receive for paying for his father residing in an institution:

35% X (60,000 - 20,000) = 14,000 NIS
