Jesus established a New Covenant (Heb. 12:24) and giving was clarified in that Covenant This article explains the details of the giving portion

Paul's Recommendation

Tithing is often misunderstood to have originated in the Old Testament Law. We are not told of it’s origination but we know that Abram paid tithes to Melchizedek
, priest & king of Salem. (Gen. 14:18-20) We also know that his grandson Jacob also promised to give God tithe on all his wealth. (Gen. 28:16& 32) Again we are not told of it’s origin but these patriots thought that it was pleasing to God and they would be blessed by paying it. It was incorporated into the Law so we know at this point that it was what God required It was to be paid on all increase. (Lev. 27:30-32) and a blessing would result for doing it. ( Prov. 3:9-10). In the beginning the tithe was dedicated to the Levites and later to the temple storehouse. (Num. 18:26 & Mal. 3:10). In the New Testament Jesus confirmed that this was one of the things that should be done to be pleasing to God. (Lk.11:42). He later explained how it should be done in keeping with the laws of government. Jesus said that the requirement of government taxation should be paid first and God’s requirement should be paid in that order. (Luke 20:21-25) and it says; “And they asked him, saying, Master, we know that thou sayest and teachest rightly, neither acceptest thou the person of any, but teachest the way of God truly:
22 Is it lawful for us to give tribute unto Caesar, or no?
23 But he perceived their craftiness, and said unto them, Why tempt ye me?
24 Shew me a penny. Whose image and superscription hath it? They answered and said, Caesar's.
25 And he said unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesar's, and unto God the things which be God's.” Based on this we are not required to pay tithing on gross income before taxes are deducted but the net after taxes. NOTE:
It is NOT on the net net after your car note, savings, health ins , 401k etc. have been deducted. It is only after federal withholding, fica, & Medicare deductions.
The tithe is not mentioned after the book of Luke.
Giving is mentioned by Paul but no specific amount is specified. He does say that it should be done willingly as one purposes in their heart and it should not be done under the feeling of compulsion. (2Co_9:7 ) He goes on to say that your harvest will be based on the amount of seed sewn, (2Co_9:6). Should you tithe on your gross income or your net is entirely up to you.
