2024 Guide Pakistan Immovable Property Deemed Income Tax 7E

Demystifying the 7E Tax: A Comprehensive March 2024 Guide to Deemed Income on Immovable Property in Pakistan

Section 7E of the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001, introduced through the Finance Act 2022, imposes tax on deemed income from immovable property situated in Pakistan.

Here are the key points:

The introduction of Section 7E in the Finance Act, 2022 of Pakistan ignited a flurry of questions and concerns, particularly regarding its implications for immovable property ownership. This tax, levied on deemed income derived from such property, necessitates a deeper dive into its intricacies.

Understanding the Fundamentals: 7E Tax

The 7E tax essentially imposes a levy on resident individuals who are considered to have earned income equivalent to 5% of the fair market value of their capital assets, which encompass land and buildings situated within Pakistan. This deemed income is then subjected to a taxation rate of 20%, effectively translating to 1% of the property’s fair market value.

Navigating the Exemptions and Exclusions:

While the 7E tax might appear all-encompassing on the surface, several exemptions and exclusions offer relief to specific categories of individuals and properties.

Exemptions by individual category:

  • Families of martyrs (Shaheed) and individuals who passed away while serving in the Armed Forces, Federal or Provincial Governments,
  • Individuals war-wounded during such service.

Exemption by asset category:

  • A resident individual’s single owned capital asset.
  • Self-owned business premises where the individual actively conducts business.
  • Self-owned agricultural land actively used for agricultural purposes (excluding farmhouses and annexed land).
  • Properties for which income is already taxed under existing regulations.

Additional exclusions:

  • Capital assets acquired within the first year, where tax under section 236K has already been paid.
  • Assets with a total aggregate fair market value not exceeding PKR 25 million, excluding specific categories mentioned above.
  • Assets owned by various government entities, including provincial and local governments, local authorities, and development authorities.
  • Assets owned by builders and developers registered with the Directorate General of Designated Non-Financial Businesses and Professions.

In essence, the 7E tax primarily targets deemed income from specific immovable properties, excluding a significant portion of assets based on ownership categories, purpose of the property, and existing tax regulations. Consulting with qualified tax professionals is highly recommended to navigate individual circumstances and ensure proper compliance with the 7E tax regulations.
