Bar Refaeli to Pay Taxes on Millions Earned Abroad
Following the ruling that Bar Refaeli must pay NIS 16 million in income tax, Adv. Harel Perlmutter, the head of our tax team, was interviewed by a popular radio program on 103FM.
The Central District Court in Lod rejected yesterday the supermodel's appeal, which was filed following an Israel Tax Authority order that she pay taxes in Israel on millions of dollars in income earned abroad.
Refaeli claimed that during the relevant years she spent only six months in Israel, and as a foreign resident, she did not owe any money to the tax authorities.
Harel Perlmutter explained the definition of a country of residence, as the trial revolved around the question of whether Refaeli was domiciled in Israel in 2009 and 2010. He also clarified the difference between the civil case and pending criminal charges.
