If there was, the refund would be in the amount of 260,000 only.Personal income tax will not be enough to cover the unused balance of just “burn” compensation amount pensioners paid for the three previous purchase years.

Decision Making Example Retired

Consider how the decision will be made in the following example: Mamonov DM retired from January 1, 2011. In 2005 it bought a room in a two-room apartment for 510 thousand rubles. In October 2012, the room was sold, but instead bought a studio apartment for 2.5 million rubles. In 2009, the amount of personal income tax paid by Mamonov was 39,070 rubles. 40 030 rubles – 2010 will be. In 2011, Mamonov did not work and did not pay income tax.

The maximum tax deduction for housing purchase in this case is:

  • 510 thousand rubles – eligible for the purchase of an apartment;
  • 2000 rubles – a fixed limit.

The amount of compensation in the first case is equal to only 66 300 rubles (510 thousand. * 13%). Three years to buy an apartment, a patronage, tax 39 070 (2009) and 40 030 (2010) budget paid so the recovered 66.300 rubles will not depend. 12 800 thousand short. Will not return! Remember that, 510 thousand. Ruble Mamonov to get back in 2006 with the purchase of the house, was able to decide the same tax for the purchase of housing. In this case, the personal income tax from the purchase of the second property is considered a reversion.

In the second case, the account will be refundable personal income tax because the cost of the apartment (2.5 million) exceeds the set limit, the amount of compensation will be 260 thousand (2 000 000 * 13%) .. However, the amount of personal income tax equal to 79 100 rubles to pay for three years (39.07 thousand. + + 40.03 ths.), he will be able to trust that. For the remainder 180 900 (260K – .. 79,1 thousand) was not compensated.

If Mamonov bought the apartment in 2014, he would have lost all the right to make tax decisions for buying a house.

Therefore, for the tax period for retirees they can revise the income tax therefore recoverable amount, and, limited. The decision making sequence is same for other categories of citizens.
