When to Pay Arnona
This article addresses when to pay arnona according to Israel’s rules and specifications. Arnona refers to property/municipal tax in Israel.
When to Pay Arnona
Arnona is charged once a year for fees from January 1 until December 31. The date of the annual payment is technically January 1, although the bill usually arrives in residents’ mailboxes at some point during the first few weeks of January. In order to accommodate financial constraints of residents, the local authority or municipality may allow for a variety of payment methods over a period of time (bi-monthly payments, monthly bank payments, etc.), but the payment due date generally will never exceed one year from the initial requested date of payment.
In the event that the arnona bill is not paid within thirty days of the date of payment as specified in the arnona bill sent in early January, additional fees may apply. Therefore, any payment arrangements with the local authority must be worked out before that time.
