How to download LTCG Tax Statement of Equity Mutual Funds?

We all know that effective from 1st April 2018, we have to pay tax on equity mutual funds if there is LTCG. However, the biggest task is how to calculate or identify the NAVs. To make your life simple, we can now download LTCG Tax Statement of Equity Mutual Funds.

Effective from 1 April 2018, equity mutual funds and direct equity investments will attract 10% long-term capital gains (LTCG) tax on gains exceeding Rs1 lakh a year.

Before proceeding further, let us first understand the taxation of Mutual Funds.

3 Factors that determine the Mutual Fund Taxation

First, let us understand what are the factors that determine the Mutual Fund Taxation. The three major part of these are below.

# Your Residential Status-Resident or Non-Resident (NRI)

Your tax will be based on your residential status. If you are resident then the taxation rules will be different and if NRI then it differs. Hence, first, you have to make sure of what is your residential status.

# Types of Funds-Equity Funds or Non-Equity Funds-

Any fund which invests 65% or more in equity is called as Equity Fund. For example, large-cap funds, multi-cap funds, small and mid-cap funds or equity-oriented balanced funds (where the equity exposure is 65% or more) are all called equity-oriented funds.

If the equity portion is less than that, then they are all treated as debt funds or non-equity funds. For example liquid funds, ultra-short term funds, short-term funds, income funds, gilt funds, debt-oriented balanced funds, gold funds, fund of funds or money market funds.

# Holding periods of Investment–

The holding period for Equity and Debt Funds will be different for taxation purpose. For equity funds, if the holding period more than a year, then it is called long term. If the holding period is less than a year, then such equity mutual funds holding period is considered as short term. Whereas in

Whereas in the case of debt funds, holding period more than 3 years is considered as long-term. If holding period of debt funds is less than 3 years, then it is considered as short-term and taxed accordingly.

I will try to explain the same from below chart.

My first question is If I have LTCG more than one lac then when i have to pay the tax (this year or 2019) and my second question is if LTCG is less then one lac then what i have to do?

    1. Dear Sikander,
      In Mutual Funds, the taxation will come into picture when you redeem the money. If your gain is less than one lakh, then you have to just show it under the head of exempt income category while filing IT Returns.

      1. Thank you for your response, i redeemed units form my mutual fund in may and june 2018. My question was do i have to file the IT this year or next year.

  8. Sir,
    1) I have been investing in SBI Blue chip MF Rs. 5000/- PM from 5th April 2017 and my income is below income tax slab. If I withdraw after 7-8 year, will it taxable if I would not in Income Tax slab then and income from here will Rs. 4 Lac or 5 lac.

    2) If I redeem the above fund after 5 or 6 year and proft from here Rs. 2 or 3 Lac can AMC deduct any LTCG tax from here ? (if then I am not in Income Tax slab.)

    3) Please refer me two best Mid or Small cap fund for invest 2018.

  9. Calculation of LTCG in 1st chart seems wrong.
    Sell Price = 150
    31st January Price = 120

    So Taxable Gain = (150 – 120) * 10000 stocks = 300000.
    10% LTCG of 300000 = Rs. 30000.

    You have calculated it as 20000.

    Correct me in case I misunderstood it.

    1. Mayank-Please check the condition. It is HIGHER of (A) or (B). Also, again in (B) it is the lower of highest price on 31st Jan 2018 or actual selling price. Hence, in (B) lower is Rs.120 but not Rs.150 we have to consider. Now between (A) and (B) the higher is (B). Hence, we have to multiply 1,000 stocks with Rs.120, which is Rs.1,20,000. In that, up to Rs.1,00,000 there is no LTCG. Hence, the taxable LTCG is only Rs.20,000. I think you considered selling price itself to arrive at the capital gain.
      Let me know if I am wrong in any ways.
