My question is about working as Tax Auditor with City of San Francisco. The auditors audit the businesses to see if they have correctly paid the taxes owed to the city. If an auditor finds any deficiencies, penalties and interest charges are calculated and charged to the underpaid amount and business is required to make the payment for the total amount, is working as tax auditor permissible
الجواب وباللہ التوفیق
In itself this job is not impermissible, however, occasional accounting of the interest in the duration of the job is impermissible and due to that the job will become Makrooh, give proportionate portion of the salary in Sadaqah or have another job instead of this job. May Allaah T’aalaa make the matters of A’afiyat for you.
واللہ اعلم بالصواب
