Is it permissible for me to claim tax returns?



I sincerely want to know if it is permissible for me to claim tax returns even though I have no investment or anything else that can fetch me returns when filing income tax.

Jazakallahu Khair.


Wa Alaykumussalam

Thank you for your question.

If according to the rules and regulations of your country, you are eligible to receive the tax return even without investment etc, then you can take it but if you have to lie or fill a form where you have to put the incorrect information so you can receive the tax return, then this is problematic and Haraam to do so.
