Tzodokah The author of Tanya, Rabbi Shneur Zalman, asks and answers your question in Book Four - Igeres Hakodesh - the end of Chapter (or letter) 10. Please study it carefully and you will find your question asked and answered. Reply

Tzodokah What if the atonement "Tzodokah" would cause a person to pay all of his income, isn't it forbidden that one should give away this amount money and then be reliable upon other? Is there a ceiling for yearly contributions for atonement? Also it would seem that for sure a person should not be able to derive any monetary benefit (example: tax break), so no record should be kept. So can you explain all the ways this type of Tzodokah differs besides what you have already mentioned in your Sheer?
