Introduction

TAN or Tax Deduction and Collection Account Number is a 10 digit alpha numeric number required to be obtained by all persons who are responsible for deducting or collecting tax. Under Section 203A of the Income Tax Act, 1961, it is mandatory to quote Tax Deduction Account Number (TAN) allotted by the Income Tax Department (ITD) on all TDS returns.

Since last few years ITD has revised the structure of TAN. It is a unique 10 digit alphanumeric code. Accordingly, they have issued TAN in this new format to all existing TAN holders.

To facilitate deductors find their new TAN, ITD has now introduced a search facility in their website (www.incometaxindia.gov.in). Through this facility deductors can search on their name and old TAN to find the new TAN. Deductors are advised to find the new TAN from this site before it is incorporated in their e-TDS return file to avoid any inconvenience at the time of furnishing e-TDS return.
