Income Tax urges Taxpayers to Update profile details before submitting any Return/Forms to avoid errors
The Income tax department has taken a crucial step by urging taxpayers to update their profiles in order to prevent mistakes on returns and other forms.
In order to update the profile:
Step 1: Taxpayers shall log in to the e-Filing portal using your user ID and password.
Step 2: On the Welcome page, on the top right corner of your dashboard.
Step 3: Click on your name and click My Profile.
Step 4: Alternatively, you can click Update profile.
Step 5: Click Authorized Signatory for Income Tax Returns / Forms.
The Income Tax Department’s site validates this by displaying the message: “PAN is Active but the Details are Not Matching with PAN Database” if the PAN is legitimate but the details—such as name and date of birth—entered by the user do not match with the given PAN.
There are currently 10,62,10,187 registrants using the e-filing portal, of which 6,22,18,553 have submitted a return.
