 I am a salaried person. Apart from Salary ,I get Income from House Property, Rs. 20,00,000 (Lakhs)  per Annum.Out of which, Rs 18 Lakhs is from Property Let out for Residential Purpose and the balance Rs 2 Lakhs fromproperty let out for Commercial Purpose.

Do I have to register for Service Tax. Do I have to collect Service Tax on Rental Income from House Property and remit the same to Service Tax Treasury ??

Renting of residential house is not taxable while renting of commercial property is liable to tax. Since rental income from commercial property is less than Rs.10 lakhs , the basic exemption , your are not liable to service tax.

Your taxable reciepts do not cross the basic exemption limit of Rs. 10 Lacs, hence you are not required to pay service tax.

Padma sir, liability to pay service tax under Renting of Immoveable property is on the service provider thus it is landlord's liability and not of the tenant.

The matter is sub-judice and seems to tilt in the favour of the department. There is no way out for the retailers, they will have to pay tax. As far as valuation of the property, the amount of property tax paid will be allowed as exemption, the landlord has to pay service tax on the differential amount net of property tax
