Burial societies: Treasury's spin a joke, public will pay tax on graves
Treasury insisted earlier that no, grieving families won't have to pay property tax on cemetery plots, the burial societies will. The burial societies think not.
The Finance Ministry may deny reports that families will have to pay property tax (arnona) on the cemetery plots of their dead, and that the burial socities will cover the bill. But the burial societies beg to differ, on Sunday calling the treasury's version "a bad joke".
