When you buy an immovable property (i.e. a building or a land) costing more than Rs 50 lakh you need to deduct TDS at rate of 1% on the payment made to the seller and file TDS return.
The delay in filing the return attracts interest and penalty. Under this plan ClearTax provides you with a prompt mechanism to comply with all the TDS compliance on purchase of immovable property.
TDS has to be deducted by every buyer on purchase of an immovable property being building/land other than agriculture land if the purchase value exceeds Rs. 50 lakh.
TDS is to be deducted from whole amount to be paid. For eg. if a property is bought for Rs 70 lakh then TDS has to be deducted on the entire amount that is Rs 70 lakh, not on just the Rs 20 lakh that exceeds the Rs 50 lakh threshold.
PAN of the seller is mandatory for deducting TDS and filing Form 26QB. It is buyer’s responsibility to acquire the PAN from the seller(s) before effecting the transaction. Neither the buyer, nor the seller is required to procure the TAN. Only PAN of both the parties is to be quoted.
The Form 26QB challan has to be filled by each buyer for every unique buyer-seller combination for their respective share. In this Expert'se, you will need to fill two form 26QB - one between you and your friend and another between you and your friend’s spouse.
