- What will happen when a person :
-Doesn’t have PAN: Aadhar can be used to file ITR & quote at all the places where PAN is Required.
-Have PAN: Aadhar & PAN needs to be linked first and then any of them can be quoted at the time of filing ITR.
|Please Note : The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) had extended the deadline to link PAN card and Aadhaar card to March 31, 2019.|
The answer to that question is the solution of 3 major problems India was facing:
Multiple PAN card:
This process of linking will ultimately reduce and subsequently eliminate the incidence of multiple PAN Cards. People usually apply for multiple PAN cards in order to illegally obtain money by deceiving the government and to reduce the tax. By these PAN cards, they used to show one class of transaction and hiding the others. Hence taxable income reduces as it was getting divided into multiple PAN cards. But now linking Aadhar, this practice of fraud will disappear because, with one aadhar, you can link only one PAN card. The best part is that those PAN cards who are not linked with the Aadhar will become invalid. Don’t you think it’s a brilliant step towards a corruption free India? Let’s move on to next.
Process of e-filing your tax returns:
Yes! You read that right! Filing tax returns was a complex process before but now this step taken by the government will make the tedious process of e-filing returns much easier. It’s because by linking PAN card with Aadhar card, taxpayers will not have to submit their Income Tax acknowledgment to the IT department if it is E-verified through Aadhaar.
