TAN Registration Online/ TAN Card


TAN is a 10-digit alphanumeric number that stands for Tax Deduction and Collection Account Number. All individuals who are responsible for deducting or collecting the tax must obtain the Tan Number.

The Income Tax (IT) Department assigns the alphanumeric number following Section 203A of the Income Tax Act, 1961. It must be included in all TDS returns.

Why is TAN Required?

Individuals must have a TAN because TIN facilitation centers would not allow returns that have been tax deducted at source (TDS) or tax collected at source (TCS) without it. If the TAN is not mentioned on the challan, banks will not allow them for TDS/TCS payments.

Failure to apply for a TAN or to quote the 10-digit alphanumeric number in prescribed documents such as TDS/TCS returns, e-TDS/e-TCS returns, TDS/TCS certificates, and TDS/TCS payment challans will result in an Rs.10,000 penalty.
