Private property is an important issue being discussed in Islamic jurisprudence and law and can be investigated from various perspectives. One such issue is the tax imposed on individuals’ assets and income including the tax on gift which, according to the Direct Taxation Law, individuals are bound to pay. The present descriptive-analytical research probes into the legitimacy of its collection and restrictions imposed on it based on fundamentals of Islamic jurisprudence. The results reveal that, regarding the principles of Islamic jurisprudence on the legitimacy and boundaries of tax on gift, the related positive laws might require revision in terms of the specified amount of tax and the failure to mention a case where the issue of gift is a requirement for the life of the party receiving the gift as an instance of exemption of tax on gift.
