Dear Sir,

Your tax liability shall be limited to your share of income only and it will not have any taxability. Only thing to confirm is that this property is in name of your brother only. The taxliability of your shall be based on your others details.

You will be taxed only on the income received by you and not on the income received on behalf of your brothers. However, pl. ensure that the title over the property is clear.
