Sderot residents are finally making headway in their fight to get fair compensation and just treatment from the Israel Tax Authority.
At the end of July, Sderot Media Center representatives and several Sderot residents met with four Knesset members to air their grievances against the ITA. Among these many grievances were under-compensation for damages, inefficient methods of damage evaluation and even disrespectful treatment of the victims.
MK Dr. Marina Solodkin wrote a letter to Finance Minister Ronie Bar-On, Sunday, requesting that he oversee a review of the ITA’s current practices and find ways by which the ITA could simplify the compensation process and allow for Sderot residents to get full compensation for their losses. “It’s very nice of her to write this letter,” Shula Sasson said. “I told a lot of people in the government and the media about this, but none of them did a thing. For [MK Solodkin] to do this, it feels like somebody really cares about me as a person.”
