Section 194-IA TDS on sale of property

When you sell a property in India, you may be liable to pay TDS (Tax Deducted at Source) on the sale proceeds. The applicable TDS rate for the sale of property is 1% of the sale consideration for transactions where the sale value exceeds Rs. 50 lakhs.



The buyer of the property is responsible for deducting TDS and depositing it with the Income Tax Department within a specified time frame. The TDS deducted can be claimed as a credit against the seller’s tax liability at the time of filing their income tax return.



If the seller is a resident individual, the TDS rate may be lower or exempted under certain conditions such as when the sale consideration is below a certain threshold, or when the seller provides a declaration in Form 15G/15H stating that their total income is below the taxable limit.
