Should you tithe from your gross or net salary? You should tithe from your gross salary. If the government takes its share from your gross salary, why then do you find it difficult to give God tithe from your gross salary?
For example, if you earn $1000 per month and the government deducts 10% as tax, you will receive a net salary of $900. You should calculate your tithe from your gross salary ($1000) and deduct another 10% from the original value which is $100. This is what you ought to offer to God as a tithe.

Remember, tithing is proof of your faith in God, as Abraham offered a tenth of everything to Melchizedek before the law of Moses was introduced. Therefore, tithing was initiated through faith and not the law.
Giving your tithe out of faith yields more blessings than doing it out of fear of the law. The Bible teaches that “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.” (1 John 4:18).
