What is PAN and why is it needed

Permanent Account Number (PAN) is a ten-digit alphanumeric number provided by the Income Tax government in the form of a laminated card to any "person" who applies for it or to whom the government allots the number without an application.

PAN allows the department to associate all "person" transactions with the department. Tax payments, TDS/TCS credits, income returns, defined transactions, correspondence, and so on are examples of these transactions. As a result, PAN serves as an identifier for the "person" with the tax department.

If you have not linked your PAN with Aadhaar, there is a possibility that your PAN could be inoperative as per the guidelines. Follow the steps below to check if your PAN is valid or not.
