Is urban land tax to be paid for 4 grounds?
Source : The Hindu Property Plus Published On : 2009-03-14 City : Chennai

I inherited a house at Gandhinagar with an extent of about 4 grounds and a house from my father who passed away about 10 years back. My mother predeceased my father, I am the only child and I have obtained the legal heir certificate and still the house in my father’s name.

I have been paying the property tax and water and sewerage tax regularly. Regarding Urban Land Tax no demand notice has been served and I am not aware whether my father was paying the ULT. The building occupies about one ground and the vacant space left is about 3 grounds.

Should I pay ULT for 4 grounds or only for 3 grounds? As I have not received any notice, I have not paid. What will be the consequences?

Name withheld on request                      

Our panelist, Mr. C.H.Gopinatha Rao replies: You have to pay the ULT for the entire 4 grounds. Twenty five per cent of concession was given earlier in respect of the urban land with building occupied and solely used for residential purposes of the owner and subsequently this concession was increased to 50% in 1972. In Chennai city special Tahsildar designated Urban Land Tax officers have been appointed for the collection of urban land tax who shall pass orders fixing the tax payable by each urban landowner. A copy of this order shall be sent to the Taluk Tahsildar concerned for raising the demand. Based on thee orders, entries should be made in the register maintained in Taluk office, The Tahsildar shall issue notice to the assesses. On collection entries should be made.

In the Register If the amount is not paid, the Tahsildar has to enforce the provisions of Revenue Recovery Act.

Exemptions and concessions are also provided under the Act for lands occupied by certain categories, which include the Government lands.

If no return is furnished within the specified period a penalty not exceeding one half of such amount of tax shall be payable, provided no order shall be made unless the owner concerned is given a reasonable opportunity of being heard.
