Tax on rental income: If you have given your house on rent, then the income earned from it comes under the purview of Rental Income. Even if you have invested in real estate and earning income from it, you are liable to tax. In such a situation, it is necessary for the landlord to know in detail about the income from rent and the tax on rented income. Rental income is added to your total income and tax has to be paid according to the tax bracket you fall in.

If the only source of income for an individual is rental income and it is up to Rs 2.5 lakh in a financial year, then it is not necessary to file a return. There are many types of deductions also available on rental income. According to the information available on the website of the Income Tax Department, the income earned from rent in a whole year is called Gross Annual Value. Municipal tax can be deducted from this income.
