Paying Khums for Missed Years

Q:

I missed 4 years of paying khums since starting my job. Can I pay khums as a whole on my 4 years savings now or do I have to pay khums for individual years? It is hard for me to estimate savings of individual years now

A:

Waalaykum Salaam,

For your Query I called the office of Sayyid Sistani and they said: 

You will have to calculate all your income for the past four years (separately) and pay Khums on each year. You cannot pay khums on just what is left at hand at the moment.
 
Kind regards
