Personal income tax

The Law on Personal Income Tax amended and supplemented in 2012 stipulates that income from transfer of land use rights and assets attached to land is also one of the types of taxable income. Accordingly, there will be two ways to determine the personal income tax payable by the assignor of the land use right and the assets attached to the land:

Option 1:

Personal income tax = 25% of profit value (selling price – purchase price)

Where the sale price is the price stated in the transfer contract and the purchase price is determined based on the price stated in the sale and purchase contract. Note that for some houses not originating from the transfer or acquisition, based on the dossiers to fulfill the financial obligations to the State at the time of being granted the house ownership or use right certificates in.
