Calculate Chennai Property Tax
The property tax values do depend on land plinth area, the rate per square feet, monthly Reasonable Leave Value, and here is the formula which calculates Chennai Property Tax.
- Plinst Area *Basic Rate per Square Feet = Rs 1000 per month ( assume 1000 sq. ft and 1 re)
- Annual Rental Value = Plinth Area * Basic Rate Per Sq. ft *12 – 10% of land
- Annual rental Value = Rs 1000 * 12 – 10 % *1000
- Annual Rental Value = Rs 10,800
- Depreciation value = Less 10% Depreciation for Building = Rs 10,800 – 1,080 = Rs 9,720
- Add 10% building value to above = 1000 * 200 = 1,200
- Annual value for Land and Building = Rs 9,720 + Rs 1,200 = Rs 10,920
- Thus Rs 10,920 is the property tax being levied if your land is 1000 sq. ft with a basic rate of 1 re.
