Q: There is a once-in-a-lifetime Real Property Gains Tax (RPGT) exemption for individuals who is a citizen or permanent resident of Malaysia who disposes of a residential property. If this property is jointly owned by 2 persons, must both the owners have not used this exemption to enjoy this?
A: When a joint ownership property is being disposed of, each co-owner will be assessed separately for RPGT. As such, only the co-owner that who has not utilised this exemption can enjoy this.
