Answer:

Wa alaykum as salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu


Your husband's job is halal, therefore his income is also halal. If it is a government requirement that he pays tax on it, then he should do so. Otherwise, he is entitled to the entire income.

However, if by having such a job, he is committing a federal offense, he should consider making his job legal so that it complies with the law of the country as well. The government laws should always be adhered to, despite the fact that the income is halal according to shari'a.

والله اعلم

Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala knows best.
