1.         Any sum of money received without consideration, it can be termed as ‘monetary gift’.

 

2.         Specified movable properties received without consideration, it can be termed as ‘gift of movable property’.

 

3.         Specified movable properties received at a reduced price (i.e. for inadequate consideration), it can be termed as ‘movable property received for less than its fair market value’.

 

4.         Immovable properties received without consideration, it can be termed as ‘gift of immovable property’.

 

5.         Immovable properties acquired at a reduced price (i.e. for inadequate consideration), it can be termed as ‘immovable property received for less than its stamp duty value’.

 

2.      Tax treatment of monetary gifts received by an individual or Hindu Undivided Family (HUF)

If the following conditions are satisfied then any sum of money received without consideration (i.e., monetary gift may be received in cash, cheque, draft, etc.) by an individual/ HUF will be charged to tax:

 

       Sum of money received without consideration.

 

       The aggregate value of such sum of money received during the year exceeds Rs. 50,000.

 

3.      Cases in which sum of money received without consideration, i.e., monetary gift received by an individual or HUF is not charged to tax

In following cases, monetary gift received by an individual or HUF will not be charged to tax:-

 

1)         Money received from relatives.

 

Relative for this purpose means:

 

i.          In case of an Individual

 

a.         Spouse of the individual;

b.         Brother or sister of the individual;

c.         Brother or sister of the spouse of the individual;

d.         Brother or sister of either of the parents of the individual;

e.         Any lineal ascendant or descendent of the individual;

f.          Any lineal ascendant or descendent of the spouse of the individual;

g.         Spouse of the persons referred to in (b) to (f).

 

ii.         In case of HUF, any member thereof.

 

2)         Money received on the occasion of the marriage of the individual.

 

3)         Money received under will/ by way of inheritance.

 

4)         Money received in contemplation of death of the payer or donor.

4.      Marriage of the individual is the only occasion when monetary gift received by him will not be charged to tax

Gift received on the occasion of marriage of the individual is not charged to tax. Apart from marriage there is no other occasion when monetary gift received by an individual is not charged to tax. Hence, monetary gift received on occasions like birthday, anniversary, etc. will be charged to tax.

 

5.      Taxability of monetary gifts received from friends

Gifts received from relatives are not charged to tax (Meaning of ‘relative’ has been discussed earlier). Friend is not a ‘relative’ as defined in the above list and hence, gift received from friends will be charged to tax (if other criteria of taxing gift are satisfied).

 

6.      Monetary gifts received from abroad

If the aggregate value of monetary gift received during the year by an individual or HUF exceeds Rs. 50,000 and the gifts are not covered under the exceptions discussed in earlier part, then gifts whether received from India or abroad will be charged to tax.

7.      Once the aggregate value of gifts received during the year exceeds Rs. 50,000 than all gifts are charged to tax

Sum of money received without consideration by an individual or HUF is chargeable to tax if the aggregate value of such sum received during the year exceeds Rs. 50,000.

 

The important point to be noted in this regard is the “aggregate value of such sum received during the year”. The taxability of the gift is determined on the basis of the aggregate value of gift received during the year and not on the basis of individual gift.

 

Hence, if the aggregate value of gifts received during the year exceeds Rs. 50,000, then total value of all such gifts received during the year will be charged to tax (i.e. the total amount of gift and not the amount in excess of Rs. 50,000).

 

Illustration

Mr. Kumar received following gifts during the financial year 2014-15:

 

       Rs. 1,84,000 from his friend residing in Canada.

 

       Rs. 25,200 from his elder brother residing in Delhi.

 

       Rs. 84,000 from his friend residing in Delhi (received on the occasion of birthday of Mr. Kumar).

 

What will be the tax treatment of above items in the hands of Mr. Kumar?

**

Sum of money received without consideration (i.e. gift) by an Individual or a HUF from any person other than relative (meaning of relative is already discussed earlier) and otherwise than on prescribed occasions (as discussed earlier) is charged to tax, if the aggregate amount of such gift received during the year exceeds Rs. 50,000. Considering these provisions, the tax treatment of gifts in the hands of Mr. Kumar will be as follows:

 

       Rs. 1,84,000 received from his friend will be fully taxed because friend is not covered in the definition of ‘relative’.

 

       Rs. 25,200 received from elder brother will not be charged to tax because elder brother is covered in the definition of ‘relative’.

 

       Birthday is not covered in the list of prescribed occasion on which gift is not charged to tax, hence Rs.84,000 received on the occasion of birthday will be fully taxed.

 

Illustration

During the financial year 2015-16, Mr. Raja received following gifts from his friends:

 

       Rs. 25,000 on 1-5-2014 (being his birthday)

 

       Rs. 18,000 on 20-12-2014

 

What will be the tax treatment of above gifts?

**

Friends are not covered in the definition of relative. Further, birthday is not covered in the list of prescribed occasion on which gift is not charged to tax and hence, gift received from friends will be charged to tax. However, nothing will be charged to tax, if the aggregate amount of gift received during the year does not exceed Rs. 50,000.

 

The aggregate amount of gift received by Mr. Raja during the year amounts to Rs. 43,000 (Rs. 25,000 + Rs. 18,000) which is below Rs. 50,000, hence, nothing will be charged to tax in the hands of Mr. Raja.

 

Suppose, if in the given case, the amount of second gift is Rs. 28,000 instead of Rs.18,000, then the aggregate amount of gift will come to Rs. 53,000 (Rs. 25,000 + Rs.28,000). In this case, entire amount of Rs. 53,000 will be charged to tax in the hands of Mr. Raja.

**

If the conditions discussed in earlier part (regarding the taxability of gift of immovable property) are satisfied, then the entire stamp duty value of immovable property received without consideration, i.e., received as gift will be charged to tax. Once the taxability is attracted, i.e., stamp duty value of property received as gift exceeds Rs. 50,000, than the entire stamp duty value of the property is chargeable to tax. Hence, in this case entire stamp duty value of property, i.e., Rs. 84,000 will be charged to tax.

Considering above provisions, the tax treatment of various items acquired by Mr. Raja will be as follows:

 

       Gold jewellery and bullion are covered in the definition of specified movable property. The fair market value of gold jewellery is Rs. 2,84,000 and of bullion is Rs.6,00,000. The purchase price of gold jewellery is Rs.1,84,000 and that of bullion is Rs. 5,50,000. It can be observed that both the properties are acquired for less than its fair market value.

 

The excess of fair market value over the purchase price will amount to Rs. 1,50,000 (Rs.1,00,000 for gold jewellery and Rs. 50,000 for bullion) which is more than Rs. 50,000.

 

Hence, the entire excess of fair market value over purchase price i.e. Rs. 1,50,000 will be charged to tax in the hands of Mr. Raja. It will be charged to tax under the head “Income from other sources”.

 

       Motor car does not come under the definition of prescribed movable property, hence, nothing will be taxed in respect of purchase of motor car.

Any prescribed movable property (meaning has been discussed earlier) acquired for less than its fair market value by an individual/a HUF is charged to tax if the following

conditions are satisfied:

 

1) Prescribed movable property is acquired by an individual or HUF.

 

2) The aggregate fair market value of such properties acquired by the taxpayer during the year exceeds the consideration paid for these properties by Rs.50,000. In other words, the aggregate fair market value of all such properties is higher than the consideration paid and the difference is more than Rs. 50,000.

 

The above provisions are not applicable in case of prescribed movable property received from relatives and received on certain specified occasions.

 

Considering the above discussed provisions, the tax treatment of various items acquired by Mr. Kumar will be as follows:

 

       The fair market value of the share is Rs. 1,00,000 and shares are acquired for Rs.84,000, thus, the excess of fair market value over purchase price will come to Rs.16,000.

 

       The fair market value of jewellery is Rs. 50,400 and it is acquired for Rs. 25,200,

thus, the excess of fair market value over purchase price will come to Rs. 25,200.

 

The total of the excess of fair market value over purchase price amounts to Rs. 41,200

(Rs. 16,000 for shares + Rs. 25,200 for jewellery) which is below Rs. 50,000 and hence, nothing will be charged to tax in the hands of Mr. Kumar.

 

Suppose, if in the given case, the fair market value of shares is Rs. 1,84,000 instead of

Rs. 1,00,000, then the aggregate of excess of fair market value of shares and gold jewellery will amount to Rs. 1,25,200, (Rs. 1,00,000 excess fair market value of shares + Rs. 25,200 excess fair market value of gold jewellery). The excess of fair market value over purchase price exceeds Rs. 50,000 and hence, entire excess of Rs. 1,25,200 will be charged to tax as income from other sources.
