What are the provisions framed under the Income-tax Law in relation to carry forward and set off of house property loss?
If loss under the head "Income from house property" cannot be fully adjusted in the year in which such loss is incurred, then unadjusted loss can be carried forward to next year.
In the subsequent years(s) such loss can be adjusted only against income chargeable to tax under the head "Income from house property".
Such loss can be carried forward for eight years immediately succeeding the year in which the loss is incurred.
Loss under the head "Income from house property" can be carried forward even if the return of income/loss of the year in which loss is incurred is not furnished on or before the due date of furnishing the return, as prescribed under section 139(1).
