    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 212/214/D=03/1435) It is allowable to pay income tax with interest money. By property tax if you mean house tax then it is not allowable to pay it with interest money. However, if you mean something else then make it clear. What do you mean by other tax, explain this as well.
