Israelis to Pay Heavier Direct and Indirect Taxes in 1970

Across-the-board increases in the direct and indirect taxes paid by Israelis are included in the 1970 budget now in the final stages of preparation by the Finance Ministry, informed sources said today.

Expected to rise are municipal taxes, automobile and television license fees and the sales taxes on tobacco, liquor and virtually every category of consumer goods. The budget will go into effect at the beginning of the new fiscal year.
