What will be discussed:
The value of the real proper will be based on the selling price, fair market value as determined by the commissioner (zonal value) or the the fair market value as shown in the provincial or city assessor, whichever is higher.
If there is no zonal value, the taxable base or whichever is higher of the gross selling price per sales documents or the fair market value that appears in the latest tax declaration.
We, as good citizens of our country, must all pay taxes to the Bureau of Internal Revenue. There are a lot of taxes to be paid, the most basic is Income tax, but there are also taxes for revenues we acquire from the sale of stocks, real estate and other capital assets. That’s where the capital gains tax comes in.
So, how does it work?
Example: Mr. Santos sells a residential lot in Pasig City with a floor area of 200sqm on cash with Selling Price of P3 Million. Mr. Santos is not engaged in a real estate business. The proceeds from the sale will be used by Mr. Santos for his trip to US and other personal expenses. The following are the fair market value information of the real property:
Does that mean I have to tell the BIR I made P100 for selling my used pair of shoes at an Ukay-Ukay? Does everyone get the same rate for Capital Gain Tax?
The BIR states that Capital Assets are property held by the taxpayer (whether or not connected with his trade or business). So that’s A LOT of things, so technically, yes you do need to tell them about the P100 used shoes, but the most common taxable assets are:
· Real estate and
· Valuable collectibles/antiques
So you probably could get away with that pair of used shoe.
