The most common principle about the tithing rate is 10%. However, tax rates are not all equal worldwide. Where I live, the highest marginal tax rate is about 48%. If I were to give 48% of my income to the government (plus paying 15% taxes on products I buy, plus paying general government fees, etc.) AND 10% of tithe... there wouldn't be much left, compare to someone whose tax rate is much lower. It is easier for a less-taxed person to tithe the 10% then for a high-taxed person. Therefore, how should a Christian deal with tithing and tax rates?
