house brokers take generally one month rent as commision when we search for rent accomadation.
Is that amount exempted from tax ?
Dear sunny, A plain answer is no. Only the amount given by you to your landlord for the rent of the house is eligible for tax benefit under HRA rules. Any other money paid to any other person, is not available for HRA related tax benefit.
No. Only bills signed by house owner come under HRA.
