What is Deemed Income?

Do You have Deemed Income ?

  • The government “deems” it fit to see income even when there might be none. At present 22 such provisions exist in the Income Tax Act
  • In case of a seller; if a person has sold a flat for 22 lakhs but the fair value assessed by the authorities comes to 24 lakhs, the extra 2 lakhs would be added to the taxable income and deemed to be received
  • In case of a buyer, if the purchase price is seen to be below the value taken for stamp duty in case of immovable property, even if it is not registered, the difference is added to the income
  • The provisions apply only to Individuals and Hindu Undivided families, and are thus discriminatory
  • The registering authorities are neither qualified engineers nor valuers and often go by street rates or thumb rule
  • No proper inspection of properties are done to check whether it is in a good shape or dilapilated, hence distorting the value

Some Deals Deemed as Taxable Income

  • Loans/advances taken by shareholder with 10 per cent stake
  • Transfer of assets by firm, or even assets to son’s wife
  • Money, jewellery, income of spouse, investments not fully disclosed
  • Aircraft operation for passengers/cargo, goods transport
  • Civil construction work by Indian and foreign firms
