About Gazt​​

​​The General Authority of Zakat and Tax underwent several developmental phases and changed its name several times. It was established in 1355 AH / 1936 AD as the “Zakat and Income Bureau“, and then it became the “Zakat and Income Authority” in 1370 AH, and ultimately, the Royal Decree No. (A/133) dated 30/7/1437 AH, specified in Section 11 that the "Zakat and Income Authority" will be converted into the "General Authority of Zakat and Tax" (GAZT), and chaired by the Minister of Finance.

​​In accordance with its regulations, the Authority will be responsible for collecting the Zakat and taxes, along with ensuring the best performance of its members in carrying out the duties assigned to them. Basing their roles on the best practices and the legal responsibilities, the Authority will make sure not to jeopardize or interfere with the powers and responsibilities of other entities while making all possible efforts to achieve its objectives.​
