FORM 26QB: FAQ

फॉर्म 26 क्यूबी म्हणजे काय?

Today, we're delving deep into the realm of Form 26QB, the indispensable tool you'll need when navigating the complexities of property transactions. In this article, we aim to demystify every essential aspect of Form 26QB in a clear and jargon-free manner. Whether you're a first-time buyer or a seasoned investor, read on to ensure you're on the right path when dealing with property taxes.

Understanding Form 26QB

In 2013, the Indian government enacted Section 194IA as part of the Finance Act. This section establishes essential guidelines concerning the sale or purchase of immovable properties. It's the document that seals the deal when you're purchasing an immovable property valued at a minimum of ₹50 lakhs. This includes a wide range of real estate, such as houses, commercial properties, plots, and more—essentially, everything except agricultural land.

Who Needs to File Form 26QB?

If you're the buyer in a property transaction exceeding ₹50 lakhs,  you assume a central role in the process. Remember that for each unique buyer-seller combination, a separate form is required. Two sellers and one buyer? You'll need to fill out two forms. Two sellers and two buyers? It's straightforward—four forms.

Calculating TDS on Your Property

Tax Deducted at Source (TDS) is calculated based on the stamp duty value of the property, provided it exceeds the actual sale value. Let's consider a scenario where Mr. X is acquiring a property from Mr. Y for ₹70 lakhs, while the stamp duty value remains at ₹75 lakhs. Here's the breakdown: TDS at a rate of 1% will be imposed on the entire ₹75 lakhs, totalling ₹75,000. After deducting TDS, Mr X will receive ₹69.25 lakhs. Remember, the stamp duty value remains the pivotal factor in this calculation.

When to File Form 26QB?

You must submit Form 26QB within 30 days after the month in which your property transaction took place. If multiple buyers are involved, each one must file their own Form 26QB. Furthermore, within 15 days of the transaction, the buyer should provide the seller with the TDS certificate after depositing the TDS amount.

Essential Information for Filing Form 26QB

You'll need:

  • PAN of both the seller and the buyer.

  • Address details for both parties.

  • Specifics about the property.

  • Contact information for the buyer and seller.

  • Details regarding the amount credited or debited.

  • Information about tax deposit.

Filing Form 26QB Online

Since 2022, the Income Tax Department has introduced an easier way to file Form 26QB for TDS, replacing the older TIN NSDL website method.

 

  • Log in to the E-filing portal using your PAN and password, the same portal for income tax return filing.

  • Choose 'e-pay tax' under the e-file tab.

  • Select 'Form 26QB (TDS on sale of property)' for new payment.

  • Specify the payment type (instalment or lump sum).

  • Make the payment using various options (internet banking, UPI, cards, or pay at a bank counter).

  • After successful payment, you'll receive a unique acknowledgement number along with the challan and TDS statement in Form 26QB. (Keep the Acknowledgement Number safe, as it's essential for downloading the TDS certificate.)

  • The challan will also be sent to your registered email. You can access the TDS certificate on the TRACES portal after 5 days.

 

(Note: For Non-Resident sellers, use Form 27Q instead of Form 26QB, following normal TDS rules.)

26QB Penalty

Being unaware of tax matters can lead to undesirable consequences. Failing to deduct TDS, issue Form 16B, or file Form 26QB under Section 194-IA of the Income Tax Act can lead to penalties and interest charges. Here's what you should know:

  • A 1% interest penalty will be levied on the undeducted TDS amount if the property buyer neglects this crucial step.

 

  • For those who forget to remit TDS to the government, a monthly penalty of 1.5% of the deducted amount awaits.

 

  • In the case of a delay in filing TDS returns, a penalty of ₹200 per day for each day of default shall be imposed.

Section 194-IA of the Income Tax Act mandates a 1% TDS payment through Form 26QB, complete with strict deadlines. Neglecting this form can result in severe penalties and interest charges.
