Money Matters - maaser or debt?
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Yehonoson Hool
Answer: If he is not using the income to pay off the debts, he should take ma’aser from it (and any money that he puts in savings) unless separating ma’aser will cause him not to pay off his debts, in which case he should first pay off his debts.
