- The Income Tax Department has said Aadhaar will be mandatory for filing income tax returns (ITRs) as well as obtaining a new PAN or permanent account number from July 1, 2017. The Central Board of Direct Taxes, the policy-making body of the I-T department, released a fresh statement last week, saying: “Everyone who has been allotted permanent account number as on the 1st day of July, 2017, and who has aadhaar number or is eligible to obtain Aadhaar number, shall intimate his Aadhaar number to income tax authorities for the purpose of linking PAN with Aadhaar.”
- Not linking Aadhaar with the permanent account number (PAN) will not cost a defaulter his PAN, but will land him in a list of suspects who may be suppressing income and will therefore face scrutiny, in line with a shift in the income tax department’s approach to widening the tax base.
