Q: I am just wondering under the deductible liabilities, what kind of bills fall in to this category? Like water and electricity? what about car insurance and car tax etc

A: Anything which became outstanding prior to your Zakat day which you haven't paid yet.
And any bills that is due to be paid in the same month of your Zakat day e.g. if your zakat day is on the 15th and you have a bill that will be debited from your account on the 25th.

And Allah knows best!
