Application Of Tax Amnesty 236 W

The circular said that Section 236W inserted through the Income Tax (Amendment) Act, 2016 mandates that every person responsible for registering or attesting transfer of any immovable property, shall, at the time of registering or attesting the transfer collect from the purchaser or transferee an advance tax at the rate of 3 percent of the amount representing the differential between the value of immovable property notified by the FBR and the value recorded by the authority registering or attesting the transfer, provided that the value of immovable property notified by the FBR is greater than the value recorded by the authority registering or attesting the transfer.
The tax collected under section 236W shall not be adjustable in the hands of the purchaser. The FBR also clarified that collection of tax under section 236W of the Ordinance is in addition to collection of withholding tax under section 236C and 236K of the Ordinance.
