(Fatwa: 396/347/L=4/1439)

 

Paying income tax with interest money received from government banks is equal to returning the amount towards its owner; hence it is allowable to pay income tax with interest received from government banks. It is not the case with the private bank interest; hence it is not lawful to pay income tax with interest money received from the private bank.
