TJN Israel (TJN IL) was established in November 2013 as a member of the Tax Justice Network (an international, non-partisan expert network which focuses on tax avoidance and tax havens) and it is based under the auspices of the College of Management in Rishon-Letzion, Israel.

TJN IL was launched in view of the growing concern by the Israeli authorities over tax evasion as well as the growing awareness by the Israeli public to tax justice issues.

 

TJN IL’s goal is to create a fair, just and equitable tax system in Israel, among others, through tackling tax evasion and avoidance, increasing transparency and implementing social considerations in the tax policy. To this end, TJN IL will promote a public discourse on tax policy decisions and their impact on inequality in Israel.

 

As part of its work, TJN publishes research reports and position papers, holds conferences and roundtables, educates students and lobbies Israeli policymakers and members of the Knesset for adopting just and equitable tax legislation.
