Kindly see definition of assets under section 2(ea) of the wealth tax act, 1957. Accordingly, any house for residential or commercial purposes which forms part of stock-in-trade; is excluded from the scope of wealth tax. Further, any property in the nature of commercial establishments or complexes is also excluded from the scope of wealth tax. In addition, any property let out for 300 days in the previous year is not subject to wealth tax.
