The Income Tax Department has extended the deadline for linking PAN with Aadhaar until 30 June 2023, providing the much-needed respite to the nation’s tens of thousands of Pan Card holders.
“The date for linking PAN and Aadhaar has been extended to 30 June 2023 in order to give taxpayers more time. This means that people can tell the designated authority about their Aadhaar for Aadhaar-PAN linking without being penalized.” Notice with this impact is being given independently,” said a Personal Duty Round.
Every person who has a PAN as of July 1, 2017, and is eligible to obtain an Aadhaar Number, is required to submit his Aadhaar to the appropriate authority on or before March 31, 2023, upon payment of a prescribed fee, in accordance with the provisions of the Income-tax Act, 1961 (the “Act”). Failure to do so will result in certain Act-related penalties beginning April 1, 2023. The deadline to notify the designated authority about Aadhaar in order to link PAN and Aadhaar has been extended to June 30, 2023.
The Income Tax Department stated last year that if a PAN and Aadhaar were not linked by March 31, a penalty of up to Rs 1,000 could be imposed; However, this type of PAN would be able to be used for filing ITRs, requesting refunds, and other I-T procedures for one more year, until March 2023.
In order to provide some more time to the taxpayers, the date for linking PAN & Aadhaar has been extended to 30th June, 2023, whereby persons can intimate their Aadhaar to the prescribed authority for PAN-Aadhaar linking without facing repercussions.
