Why you need PAN?

Why you need PAN?


PAN, or permanent account number, is a unique 10-digit alphanumeric identity allotted to each taxpayer by the Income Tax Department under the supervision of the CBDT (Central Board of Direct Taxes).


PAN is mandatory for financial transactions such as receiving salary or professional fees, sale or purchase of assets above specified limits, buy mutual funds and more. It also serves as an identity proof in everyday financial transactions.


All existing assessees or taxpayers or persons who are required to furnish a return of income, either on behalf of self or others, must obtain PAN. Any person, who intends to enter into economic or financial transactions where quoting PAN is mandatory, must also obtain PAN.
