News & Announcement

According to tax authorities, real-estate companies should have to pay tax based on Annual Letting Value (ALV) on unsold flats as they are the owners of the flats and it does not matter whether the properties are rented out or not.

In a bid to arrest hoarding of residential flats by developers and increase supply across the country, the income-tax department has decided to tax realtors on estimated annual rentals.

The tax could be anywhere between 15% and 20%. The move is as per the central action plan for 2015-16, under which the I-T department can levy tax on any unsold flat by treating it as ‘income from house property’ under Section 43-CA of the I-T Act, 1961.
