TAN Registration


A Tax Deduction and Collection Account Number (TAN) is a 10 digit alphanumeric number issued to persons who are required to deduct or collect tax on payments made by them under the Indian Income Tax Act, 1961.
It is mandatory for business entities and other type of entities to deduct tax at the source, i.e. while paying rent, salary, etc. and pay the same to the Government. To track these payments, TDS Certificates and TDS Filings, the Government mandates TAN registration for all entities required to deduct tax at source.
All those persons who are required to deduct/collect tax at source on behalf of Income Tax Department are required to apply for and obtain TAN.
To obtain TAN, an application must be made in Form 49B at any of the authorized TAN Facilitation Center.
No. PAN should never be quoted in the field where TAN is required to be quoted. The purpose for which PAN and TAN are allotted are different. Therefore, it is mandatory for those deducting tax at source to obtain a TAN.
TAN Registration can be obtained in 7-14 working days from date of submission of application along with the required documents.
