TAN DEDUCTION ACCOUNT NUMBER TAN
TAN registration is required for making tax deduction or tax collection at source, remittance of TDS payments and issuance of TDS certificates.
TAN or Tax Deduction and Collection Number (TAN) is mandatory 10 digit alpha number required to be obtained by all persons who are responsible for Tax Deduction at Source (TDS) or Tax Collection at Source (TCS) on behalf of the Government. Tax deducted at source (TDS) ensures that the Government’s collection of tax is spread over the whole year and the responsibility for collecting tax is diversified. An application for allotment of TAN is to be filled in Form 49B and submitted at any of the TIN facilitation centres meant for receipt of e-TDS returns. TAN is allotted by the Income Tax Department on the basis of the application submitted to TIN Facilitation Centres managed by National Securities Depository Limited (NSDL). NSDL will intimate the TAN which will be required to be mentioned in all future correspondence relating to TDS/TCS.
The person deducting the tax at source is required to deposit the tax deducted to the credit of Central Government – quoting the TAN number. Individuals who are salaried are not required to obtain TAN or deduct tax at source. All most all for-profit entities and not-for-profit entities are required to obtain TAN including proprietorship businesses. Once a TAN is issued, it is valid for lifetime.
Such persons must deduct tax at source while making certain payment like salary, payments to contractor or sub-contractors, payment of rent exceeding Rs.1,80,000 per year, etc.
Tax Deducted at Source must be paid into authorized bank, quoting the TAN and using Challan 281. TDS during the preceding month must be paid before the 7th day of the following month. On deducting tax at source, the entity registered for TAN will issue a TDS Certificate as proof of collection of tax. However, TDS Filings must be made quarterly on the 15th day of July, October, January and May. Non-filing of TDS filings within the due date will attract a penalty.
To obtain TAN, application must be made for allotment of TAN in Form 49B along with the required supporting documents. Based on the application, the TAN will be allotted to the entity and the entity must quote the TAN in all TDS/TCS returns, TDS/TCS payment challans and all TDS/TCS Certificates.
