Tax payable on long term capital gains on sale of residential flat.
by Akshay Desai
Question: Capital Gains Deduction u/s 54
Me and my wife had jointly purchased the flat for Rs.8,00,000 in Nov.2007.
We have sold the same flat in January 2012 for Rs. 15,00,00/-. We have jointly purchased a new house in April 2012 for Rs. 20,00,000/-.
What will be our long term capital gain tax for Financial year 2011-12 ? Do we have to pay capital gain tax separately?
(we assumed the sale consideration as Rs. 15,00,000/- instead of Rs. 15,00,00/- as you mentioned in your question.)
Your LTCG comes around Rs. 3,60,254. Use the Free LTCG Calculator
As you have already invested Rs.20,00,000 for purchasing a new residential house, you can claim exemption u/s 54. You need not pay capital gain tax.
