Registration Valuation

This query is : Resolved 

At the time of registering a property, the valuation for the purpose of stamp duty is found to be higher than transaction value.
Will the additional valuation be treated as deemed income in the hands of seller?
What is the relevant income tax provision?

Yes, if such difference is >20% (up to 30th June 2021), the stamp duty value would be the sale consideration for the transferer. The difference would also be taxed in the hands of the transferee under IFOS. Refer to section 50C and 56(2)(x) for more details.

Section 50c.
In case sale consideration received or claimed to be received by seller on sale of land or building or both is less than value adopted by stamp valuation authority, such value adopted by SVA would become actual sale consideration received or accruing to the seller. Therefore, capital gain would be Valuation as per stamp valuation authority reduced by cost/indexed cost of acquisition.

However, Budget 2018 has brought about an amendment in section 50C whereby no adjustments shall be made in a case where the variation between stamp duty value and the sale consideration is not more than five percent of the sale.

Thank You CMA Poornima and CA R Shreedharan! Appreciate the prompt response!

5% limit was revised to 10% as per Finance Act 2020. Also 20% limit is applicable only in case of section 43CA (not 50C). Correct me if this is not right.

Thank You! Does the buyer have any implication!

If the difference is >10%, (SDV - consideration) would be taxed in the hands of the buyer under income from other sources.

Thank You! So both buyer and seller effectively get ta xd!
