Halacha - Maaser
Submitted by jack  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: Generally the maximum maaser allowed by Halacha is 20% of net income. The reason for this limit is that if one would over-give, he may make himself impoverished and need to ask for handouts himself. Therefore, the Poskim allow one who is very wealthy and has numerous assets to exceed the 20% limit, on the asumption that he will leave over enough for himself. Of course it is wonderful that you are asking such a question and it displays a generous heart. Most people ask about the minimum.
