Aadhaar linked with PAN? E-verify ITR using your Aadhaar card- Income tax tip
Have you linked your Aadhaar Card with PAN? If these documents of yours are linked then you can e-verify your Income Tax Returns (ITR) using your Aadhaar. You also need to note that your mobile number should be registered in Aadhaar to avail of this service. The information was provided by UIDAI over its official Twitter handle. "A simple method to e-verify your Income Tax Returns is by using your #Aadhaar. If your Aadhaar is linked with #PAN, you can e-verify your #ITR using Aadhaar. Please note that your mobile number must be registered in Aadhaar to avail of this service," UIDAI tweeted on Friday.
However, if your Aadhaar and PAN are not linked then you are advised to link your Permanent Account Number (PAN) with your Aadhaar card by March 31, 2022. You can link both the documents online by visiting the official website of the Income Tax Department. Not only for e-verifying ITR but linking these documents are also important as if you fail to link the documents by the given deadline then your PAN card will become invalid and you will also have to pay Rs. 1,000 for PAN Aadhaar linking.
