Appellate Tribunal rules in favor of assessee on income classification issue, penalty deemed unjustified.

Case Laws     Income Tax

July 4, 2024

The Appellate Tribunal addressed the issue of penalty u/s 271(1)(c) concerning the correct classification of income. The Assessing Officer treated the income as 'income from house property' instead of 'business income', disallowing deductions. The Tribunal noted that in a previous assessment year, the same income was accepted as 'business income'. The AO's imposition of penalty for furnishing inaccurate particulars was deemed unjustified, citing legal precedents. The Tribunal emphasized that a mere unsustainable claim does not warrant penalty unless there is deliberate misinformation. The Tribunal ruled in favor of the assessee, highlighting that the recovery from the tenant exceeded the agreed rent. Not appealing disallowances does not automatically attract penalty, as penalty proceedings are separate. The assessee has the right to contest and prove no concealment of income, thereby negating penalty u/s 271(1)(c).
