Tax Implication on Sale of Flat

POSTED BY Amit Gupta ON September 20, 2012 8:31 pm COMMENTS (2)


I need advise/clarification regarding sale of flat. I bought a flat in resale from original allotte. I executed sale deed on 15th Dec2010 and transfer from builder was completed on 18th Feb 2011. Original allottee had taken possesion of the flat in Sep2010. 

After transfer in Feb 2011, I got the property registered in joint name (my and dads) in Sept 2011. The flat was bought at 55L + registration 3L. Assuming that the sale is for 85L, what would be the tax implication on it.

    As Ashal pointed out as you held the property for less than 3 years it would come under Short Term capital gain. You can use our article Basics of capital gain to understand capital gain and calculator
    Capital Gain Calculator for exact calculations.
    Hope it helps!

  2. Dear Amit, the gains for you ‘ll be STCGs & thus you & your father w’d have to pay 30.9% tax on your gains.
