Method of Property Tax Assessment

As per section 100 of Chennai City Municipal Corporation Act 1919, concept of reasonable letting value (R.L.V.) has been adopted for arriving at annual rental value and Half yearly tax for any property in Chennai City limits.

 

The monthly rental value (R.L.V.) is fixed with reference to Basic Rate per Sq.feet for Residential and Non-Residential properties separately.

Method of fixing Annual Value of any Property:

Example

Plinth Area X Basic Rate per Sq.ft e.g. 100 Sq.ft. x Rs.1.00

 

Monthly rental value (i.e) 100 P.M.

 

Annual rental value Rs.(100 x 12months) - 10% for land Annual Value for Building only Rs. 1200/- -Rs.120/- = Rs.1080/-

 

Rs.1080/ Less 10% depriciation for the building for Repairs / Maintenance= Rs 108/-

 

Depriciated value of the building Rs. 1080 - 108 = Rs.972/-

 

Add 10% of the land= Rs. 120/-

 

Annual Value for land and Buildings: 972 + 120 = Rs. 1092/-

 

Simply stated, 10.92 is the common factor for calculating annual value for all buildings.

 

To arrive at Annual value of any building, multiply monthly rental value with 10.92.

 

Method of fixing Annual Value for Land : (taken on lease or rent) Monthly rental value ( as per agreement between lessor and leesee) x 12 = Annual Value

 

No depreciation is allowed for land For Vacant Land: Rent per 2400 Sq.feet (One Ground) = Rs. 8.00 P.M. Annual Value (Rs.8.00 x 12) = Rs. 96.00 P.M.

 

Method of fixing Annual value for Super Structure only: (Landowner being separate) Annual rental value - 10% x (MRV x 12) Half yearly Property Tax for any property is calculated as percentage of annual rental value as per table given below.
