How to calculate Tax on deemed income?

The formula for calculation is 5 % X fair market value(FMV) of capital assets X the rate of tax (20%) Or   Fair Market Value(FMV) Of Capital Assets X Effective Rate of Income Tax (1%)

 For example, if a person owns a capital asset of 30 million, the Deemed Income will be (30 million x 5% = 1,500,000) and the tax paid on deemed income is 300,000. The effective rate of income tax is 1% (30 million x 1%= 1,500,000).

Case 1: A Person owns Single property with a fair market value of Rs. 28 million

In this Scenario the person owns only one capital asset which is exempted from tax. Although the fair market value of 25 million rupees but the said property is exempted from tax on deemed income therefore no tax is payable. 

Case 2: A Person Commercial property used for business with a fair market value of Rs. 30 million and his name appeared in ATL

In this Scenario the person owns a capital asset of of Rs. 30 million , as the said property is self –owned and used for business purpose therefore exempted from tax on deemed income. 

Case 3: A Person owns a property with a fair market value of Rs. 28 million and taxes has already been paid on property income

In this Scenario no tax on deemed income is payable as the income tax is already been paid on property income earned from this capital asset. Therefore, this person not required to pay any tax on deemed income.

Case 4: A person owns two properties, one has a fair market value of 28 million Rupees  and the other has a fair market value of  30 million Rupees

In this Scenario the aggregate value of total capital assets is 58 million, however as per rule one capital assets is exempted, therefore one property of which has valued as 30 million Rupees can have excluded from deemed income and other property can be taxed. The tax can be calculated as follows.

Deemed Income: 2,800,000 x 5% = 1,400,000

Tax payable = 1,400,000 x 20%= 280,000

Or 1% x 2,800,000 = 280,000
