Claiming for assisting someone on one’s tax returns

Q: I claim that I support my nieces on my last year tax return with the permission of my sister but they don’t live here, can you please tell me if that money is halaal or haram?


A: Yes, if you are helping them.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
