Sale of House Property

Hi, I had sold my apartment in year 2018 September. Do I need to show that sale on property? as it going to be three year now. I am pending to file ITR for FY 2020-2021 which I believe have time till December.

Hey @Tabish_Ansari ,

You had to show the sales of the apartment in FY 2018-19 ITR. If you are selling a property during the period 01-04-2020 to 31-03-2021 then only you are required to show that sale on property in the current ITR. The due date for filing ITR for FY2020-21 is 31st December for non tax audit filers.

Hope it helps.

Team - Can you help guide which plan should i opt if i need to file ITR for next year for my mother who is a pensioner and sold a house / flat in FY 2021-22?

Also after selling the house, is it ok to park the funds received from buyer in my mother’s savings account (before filing ITR in 2022) and investing in Capital Gains Savings Scheme or Capital Gain Investment Bonds before 31 March 2022?

Please help.

Hi @aniruddha_41, since you have capital gains from sale of property, you should file ITR-2.
You can invest the money you have deposited within the period specified by the bank, if you fail to do so, your deposit shall be treated as capital gains.

Here’s are a few articles that might be useful.

Thanks @Yash_Kaviya. Do you have a tool to calculate capital gains tax from the sale of property? Above investments make sense if I am incurring capital gains. It could even be that I am incurring capital loss. Just need to assess if I even need to sign up for capital gain bonds or cgas. Please let me know. Thanks.

Always happy to help @aniruddha_41, you can log on to Quicko and easily add all your details in the House Property tab to calculate your gains/losses with indexation after which you can decide whether to sign up and invest in Capital Gain bonds or CGAS.
If you require any assistance, please let me know, would love to help.

Hi @Yash_Kaviya - after logging in, i am unable to find out “house property” tab? Can we please connect privately over email: aniruddha.chakravarti@gmail.com
I need guidance on how to calculate the capital gains tax from sale of property in your portal. Very much appreciated your help and guidance.

Hey @aniruddha_41, once you login, you need to click on “Filing”, then click on prepare your return, once you click that, under the “Income” tab you’ll see “Capital Gains” and you can fill the relevant details under “Did you sell immovable property?”.
Let me know if you face any further issues. I’ll help you to resolve the issue.

Got it. Thanks @Yash_Kaviya

Hi Team,

I need your guidance for IT preparation for next financial year for my pensioner father.

My father intends to sell his house this financial year (FY 2022-23) and also purchase another plot / construct a house in another city within one year of sale. The house that he intends to sell was constructed in 1970 (so LTCG tax will apply).

My father is also owning two other houses (one joint with my mother - senior citizen) and another flat in his own name.

I am confused in terms of whether my father will be eligible to get exemption from capital gains tax if he uses the sale proceeds from one house to construct another house in another city in India. Please can you help guide me?

Also, can my father purchase a plot (using his own savings / pension) in his name along with me as a joint owner before selling the house and still claim capital gains tax exemption i.e. after the sale happens, he will use the net proceeds from the sale to start constructing the house in the plot purchased before the actual house sale?

Objective is to purchase a plot at the earliest as the cost of land is going up everywhere.

Thank you.
Aniruddha

Hello @aniruddha_41,

Yes even if your father is owning two other houses he is eligible to claim exemption under section 54 of Income tax act.

There is no geographical boundaries mentioned for new house purchased in Section 54.

Also he can buy a new house as joint owner, just he will be able to get exemption proportionately.

Hope this helps!
