Mutual fund agents and their sub-agents will not have to pay service tax from July 1 for distributing or marketing mutual funds. The Centre's move to provide service tax exemption to mutual fund distributors is being seen as booster dose for the mutual industry, which has been agitated over this levy. Mutual fund investors too will have cause for cheer as service tax is passed on to them. Distribution of mutual funds attract service tax, although the mutual fund houses in many cases absorb this tax to provide relief to their agents or distributors.
