Do Parents need to pay rent to son ?

POSTED BY dsrao ON October 19, 2013 5:11 pm ONE COMMENT

I live in my own house and bought a second house in the same apartment complex recently. My parents, who are my dependents, have moved into that house.

Since I have taken a home loan for this second house, I am planning to claim tax benefits (Principal & interest). Do I need to declare this house as “Let-out” or “self-occupied” (as my dependents are staying there)? Do I need to declare a nominal rent from my parents and pay tax on that income?

    Dear DSRao, if the idea is to show rent and to claim, full interest benefit of home loan, yes you should charge actual rent from your parents.
