  1. Yes, division of Income gained may reduce the burden of tax on your property…

    Properties sold after three years of acquisition, long-term capital gains tax applies.
    The only way is to invest the gains in another property in the 3 years after selling.
    😀
    Not sure, but no tax will be applicable in that case if you buy another property after selling your father’s property

  2. the first thing first u need to calculate the amount of capital gain…then to evade tax you can follow many methods without dividing the income in 5 parts….their are many schemes covered in section 54 of the income tax act…but for that you have not given the enough details what is the cost of property…why are u selling it will you buy another property…or this was just for investment purpose…when did u buy the property if the property is more than 36 months old its a long term asset for you and you can then only get the indexation benefit…any improvement made on the building…using the above details u will have to find the cap gain…u don’t pay tax on the full 80 lakh u pay tax on 80L – Icost of acquisition Icost of improvment expence on transfer
    icost means indexed cost
