In a surprise audit carried out by the Israel Tax Authority during the summer months in the upper galilee area of Israel, 16% of the hospitality businesses inspected were found to have evaded taxes.

The authority inspected establishments such as bed and breakfasts, restaurants, and galleries, located in tourist-favored locations such as Rosh Pina and Safed.

Among the evaders discovered was a guesthouse located in Kfar Hoshen, a moshav numbering around 750 people, who accumulated NIS 60,000 (approximately $17,000) within two weeks without being registered with the tax authority as a business; a guesthouse in moshav Shezor that failed to record nearly NIS 16,000 (approximately $4,540) in its books; and an emotional consultant who left out NIS 5,300 (approximately $1,500) worth of payments.
