I am withdrawing money from a savings fund. Is maaser calculated on the amount before tax or the amount after tax.

Answer:

Maaser is paid from the amoung after tax, because this is the amount that you actually gain. This is comparable to regular earnings, from which maaser is calculated based on net earnings (not gross).
