Q. Thank you very much. Just to clarify, if I take off maaser when I earn the money as you pasken, and then I invest it in stocks or put in an IRA, do I then calculate the maaser yearly – or just when I sell the stocks/take money out of the IRA?
thank you again for your help
A. What Horav Shlomo Miller Shkit’a advised, was to give the maaser tzedaka money to the intended proper recipients now, and not to invest it. As our Sages teach; a mitzva that comes to your hand, do not delay it.
When you iy”H retire, and you begin collecting also the interest earned from your IRA, you may then give also maaser from those monies earned.
Rabbi A. Bartfeld as revised by Horav Shlomo Miller Shlit’a
