In a significant move, the income tax department has urged the taxpayers to update their profile in order to avoid any errors in the return/forms.
“Update your profile details before submitting any Return/Forms to avoid errors,” the department instructed through its e-filing portal.
In order to update the profile, 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, click on your name and click My Profile. Alternatively, you can click Update profile. Click Authorized Signatory for Income Tax Returns / Forms.
In case the PAN is valid but the details – such as name and date of birth – entered by the user do not match with the given PAN, the Income Tax Department’s portal confirms the same by displaying the message: “PAN is Active but the details are not matching with PAN database.”
Currently, 10,62,10,187 registrants are there with the e-filing portal out of which, 6,22,18,553 have filed the return.
