Treasury: No Tomb Tax Expected

The Finance Ministry announced, Sunday, "There's no truth to the report that municipal property tax will be charged on graves."

The statement also said, "In the budget proposal for 2013-2014, the Treasury proposes to return the situation to where it was and prevent the loss of revenue from local authorities. The tariffs for those who wish to acquire a burial plot while alive are set by law and cannot be changed, except by the Knesset."
