The lawyer told who is not entitled to a tax deduction when buying an apartment

All Russians who pay personal income tax (PIT) are entitled to a tax deduction when buying a home. The tax deduction is 13% of the price of the home and is given once in the entire period, lawyer Maria Omelchenko reminded Rossiyskaya Gazeta.

“Tax deduction is provided from the amount of 2 million rubles when buying or building a house and the amount of 3 million rubles when buying a house with a mortgage Therefore, the amount of tax deduction is 260 thousand rubles when buying a house, if own funds are used, and 390 thousand rubles when buying a house with a mortgage, “explained the lawyer.

If the price of the house is less than 2 million rubles, the deduction is calculated based on the purchase amount, and the balance can be transferred to other countries.

It should also be remembered that sole proprietors and freelancers can receive tax deductions if, in addition to their business activities, they work under an employment contract or civil law. Otherwise, they are not entitled to take it, as they are not IRPF taxpayers.

“Tax deduction is given at 13% of gross income for the year. That is, buying a house for 2 million rubles and the price of 20 thousand rubles, you have to return your tax deduction for several years.

To receive a tax deduction, documents must be submitted to the bodies of the Federal Tax Service of the Russian Federation: a personal income tax return in form 3-NDFL (the form can be obtained from the office of taxes or on their website); income certificate in the form of 2-NDFL (received from the employer); a home purchase agreement; certificate of authority (or extract from USRN); an act of acceptance and transfer of a building (or part thereof) to a taxpayer; documents confirming the expenses for the purchase of the property (bank statements, receipt from the buyer when the money was received); Passport; marriage certificate (if the house was sold during the marriage),” said Maria Omelchenko.
