Unpaid mahr in tax (zakat) calculation

Question: Should I subtract the unpaid mahr as a liability from my total wealth during zakat calculation?

Yes, you can subtract the mahr amount from your wealth during tax (zakat) calculation. On the other hand, if you have that amount in your wealth, you should give it right away to your wife. Delaying the repayments without a valid reason is not permitted in Islam.
