Purchasing a house or plot is one of the biggest milestones in a person’s life. With rising property costs, purchasing a home has become one of the biggest expenses an individual incurs in his/her life. This expense is further increased by miscellaneous expenses like stamp duty and registration charges. These expenses are mandatory and all new property owners have to pay for these, in order to complete the transfer process.
Stamp duty charges constitute up to 10% of the property value whereas registration charges account to usually 1% of property value. This excess expenditure creates an added burden on the home buyers.
In order to ease this burden, the government has included these expenses as part of deductions under the Income Tax Act, 1961. These expenses form part of the deductions allowed under section 80C of the Act. According to this section, the maximum deduction or tax benefit that can be allowed to a home buyer for the added expenditure of stamp duties and registration expense is restricted to Rs. 1,50,000 subject to fulfilling the underlying conditions stated in this section.
About Tax Benefit On Stamp Duty And Registration Charges
Stamp duty is referred to the tax that is levied on any kind of monetary transaction or consideration for the purchase of a property. This charge was effected on the property and part of the property cost after the passing of the Indian Stamp Act in 1899.
Stamp Duty is a tax that is levied on many types of transactions such as conveyance deeds, sale deeds, and power of attorney papers. A person can collect the documents pertaining to the property only after the payment of stamp duty.
Stamp duty is charged as a percentage of cost of the property and hence varies based on the evaluation of the value and nature of the property. The amount derived is further compared with the prevailing circle rate. The final amount of stamp duty is calculated on the value that is higher.
