    for HUFs , the date of incorporation in some cards are shown as Ancestral. how do we give the date of incorporation for registration in Traces?

    • By admin

      Take date of incorporation as per pan card

  2. When registering as a taxpayer, should the communication address be the one on the PAN card or the address given to the Deductor. I no longer live at the address mentioned on my PAN card

    • By admin

      You can give present address. NO such conditions.

      • Thank you for the feedback. I tried registering, but after step 2 received an email saying ‘registration failure as information did not match’. No other details were provided.
        I used option 1 during registration. My bank has provided Form 16A. The form shows TDS deduction details for two accounts on the same form 16A. The challan number is the same both the TDS amounts
        1. While entering the TDS amount should I fill in the total tax deducted or the tax deducted only for one account?
        2. The date on which interest is deposited & tax deducted is 31-Dec-2014 while the date on which the tax was deposited is 05-Jan-2015. While entering the month-date, should I mention Dec-2014 or Jan-2015?
        I am using the link for NRI services

    I got my Challan number for FORM 26QB for TDS payment on immovable property four days ago. However, when I try to register on TRACES website with Option 2 by providing PAN#, Challan# and TDS (1%) amount, it gives me errors saying “The details provided in Option 2 are not valid. Please enter valid data”. I don’t know what to do next? Unless I register, I can’t get the Form 16B to send it to my builder. Please help on this issue. Thanks in advance.

    Why is it required to register as a taxpayer in TRACES site. Are there any benefits for the Taxpayer in it.
    There are already IncomeTax related sites created by the Govt.

      Some features and facilities ( TDS ) regarding is available only on Traces site. Thats why it is necessary to register on Traces site. However, It is not compulsory if you do not want any feature to use.
