BBMP Property Tax

Taxes are the main source of revenue for maintaining and funding the major public utilities in the country. As we know, taxes are imposed on various incomes and services like income from house property, income from the sale of goods, and income from providing services to clients. The property tax is levied on the owner of the property.

The levy of property tax is delegated to the municipal corporations of each state. The municipal corporations are responsible for maintaining proper roads, drainage systems and cleanliness in the public areas like parks etc. The state government has delegated the levy of a tax to municipal corporations and thus the mode of payment, and rates at which it is levied in different cities differ from place to place. Owning a property has its own nuances and understanding the payment of tax is another complicated task for the citizens. The municipal corporations have made the payment and calculation of taxes online which has brought ease to the entire process.

The owners of properties in Bangalore have to pay property tax to the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike. The municipal corporations utilize these funds to maintain all civic facilities in the city. The property tax is calculated on the basis of unit area value (UAV). The UAV system of calculating the tax is based on expected returns from the property, the usage of the property and the location.

Calculation of Property Tax

The formula for calculating property tax is as below

Property Tax (K) = (G - I) * 20% + cess (24% property tax)

G = G is the gross unit area valued by adding X, Y, Z and I

Where X is the property occupied by tenants * per square foot rate * 10 months

Y is the self-occupied area of property * per square foot rate * 10 months

Z is the vehicle parking area of property * per square foot rate * 10 months

H is the percentage rate of depreciation for the property.

Therefore, the calculated property tax is equal to 20% area of the property which is multiplied by the per square foot rate of BBMP reduced by depreciation and allowed 24% cess on property tax.
