What is a TAN ?

In India, a Tax Deduction and Collection Account Number is a 10 digit number issued to persons who are required to deduct or collect tax on payments made by them under the Indian Income Tax Act, 1961

Persons liable to apply for TAN ?

As discussed above, every person liable to deduct tax at source or collect tax at source is required to obtain TAN. However, a person required to deduct tax under section 194-IA can use PAN in place of TAN as such person is not required to obtain TAN

Documents required ?

While applying for a new TAN, applicants are not required to submit any documents. The only thing they need to submit is the signed acknowledgement slip if they apply for a new TAN through online mode.

Banks do not accept the challans for TDS/TCS payments if TAN is not quoted.
