Bar Refaeli: Evading Israel's Taxes?

Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Bar Refaeli has already been accused of dodging her required two years of military service in Israel, but she's reportedly also attempting to skip out on paying taxes in her home country. According to Page Six:

Lawyers for Leo DiCaprio's favorite model have been negotiating for months to declare her a nonresident of the country for tax purposes. "That would save her hundreds of thousands of shekels a year," Israeli paper Haaretz reports.

However, the Israel Tax Authority wants Refaeli to at least pay her back taxes and argues that her home is Israel, despite spending more than half of the year abroad and her company being registered in Singapore.
