Selling a House, Means of Transportation, and Lands 10item Is khums applicable to a house constructed some time ago with the money from which khums had not been paid? Assuming that its khums is obligatory, does the appropriate khums correspond to its current value or to the value of the money spent on its construction? I bought a car several years ago, and at the present time it might sell for a price several times more than what it was purchased for. As khums was not paid on the money spent to buy it, and I am planning to buy with its proceeds a house to live in, does khums apply to the entire amount once I receive it, or does it apply only to the money that I paid to buy the car while the balance, that is, the difference of the sale value over the original price of the car, is considered as part of the earnings of the year in which the car is sold and as a result is subject to khums if the money is not spent on living expenses by the end of the khums year? If a person sells his house and deposits the money in a bank to get interest, what is the ruling when the khums year ends? And what if this money was saved to purchase a house? If a house, car or other necessities bought for personal use - not for the sake of business or making money with the money whose khums was paid are - later sold for some reason, is the increase in the market value subject to khums? I own an unfinished house in a town, but I do not need it since I am living in housing provided by the government. I want to sell it to buy a car for personal use. Is its price liable to khums? I had purchased some doors for my house, and as I did not like them I sold them two years later, and I put the money in an aluminum company account for assembling new aluminum doors at the same price to replace those I had sold. Is khums applicable to that money? Does khums apply to the money saved gradually intending to buy a house or other life necessities Recently, I sold my residential apartment and this transaction took place at the end of my khums year. While I see that I am liable to fulfill my religious obligations, I face a problem in the present circumstances. Please enlighten me regarding this matter. When a house, car, or other necessities that a person or his family needs and were purchased from the annual income are sold on account of a necessity or to replace them with items of superior quality, what is the ruling in regard to khums? I paid 100,000 tumans to an institution to acquire housing land in the future. One year has elapsed on that money, part of which is mine and the rest was obtained through a loan, some of which I have paid off. Is khums applicable to this money and to what extent?
