    Dear Sir/ Madam,

    I had purchased a flat in Pune and signed a sale agreement. I had paid the first two instalments and directly paid the service tax through HDFC Netbanking. Thereafter the builder had financial problems due to which construction did not commence. I submitted a request for withdrawal and the sale deed was cancelled. I have received 80 % of my money from the builder and about to get the balance.

    Please advice me how to get the service tax refunded. I have the receipts of payment through the bank.

    Thanking you ,

    Dear Ajay

    You had paid the Service Tax to the builder who had deposited the Service Tax with the Govt.

    So you should ask the builder to refund the service tax to you.

    PS: The Govt will refund the service tax to the builder.

    In case of Purchase of Under-construction property - The buyer pays the Service Tax to the Builder and the Builder pays to the Govt.

    Request you to kindly consult a CA in the above mentioned case because as per Govt norms - you have to pay the service tax to the builder and then builder then deposits the service tax with the Govt
