The Council of Ministers approved “Automatic IRS” for households with dependents, thus extending the measure to three million households next year. In 2017, “Automatic IRS filing” covered taxpayers with no dependents, having salaries or pensions. In 2018, “Automatic IRS filing” will include families with dependents, as well as taxpayers who receive tax credits related to donations.
The Tax Authority (“AT”) is working to automate IRS filing for taxpayers with dependent children as early as 2018. Last year, automatic IRS filing only benefited taxpayers without dependents. According to the latest “AT” data (2015), taxpayers with dependent children account for over 1.2 million households.
