POSTED BY luckyr18 ON January 6, 2014 8:59 am COMMENTS (11)

Dear Sir,

Myself, my wife and my father are in govt. services and are earning Rs.40000 each. We have two home loans. First home is in the name of myself and my wife for which we are paying 12500 each i.e., 25000 as emi.

Second home is in the name of Myself, my wife and my father for which we are paying 9000 each i.e., 27000 as emi.

Myself and my wife are enjoying tax benefits on our first home.

My father is having tax benefits for the second home we bought.

I am planning to form HUF.

Query is –

1 Who should be karta for max tax benefits.

2 For the second home, to get maximum tax benefits, do we 3 need to transfer that home in the name of huf ?

3 If yes, than what is the procedure.

Thank you so much, waiting for your kind response

    Thanks Ashal,

    thats why i forced my builder to provide possession before march 2014. Now i m happy that me and my wife will get rebate for the interest i paid in this year that is 79000/- each.

    Dear Lucky, if the possession hapens in March 2014, the interest paid by you in current FY ‘ll be available to you for this FY itself.

    1 more question is that please tell me..

    My first house will have possession in march 2014.. Can i get rebate on interest and principal for the fnancial year 2013-2014.

    Dear Lucky, you did not answer my query. How ‘ll you transfer the house to HUF and from where did you get the info that 1.5L Rs. interest benefit for each house is available? As you said, you read it somewhere, please try to locate the info. I’m concentrating it for the fact that it’s a wrong info with you. For better understanding, please read similar past queries (2 or more than 2 house properties) here in the forum.
