Income Tax Return: Good News! ITR can also be filled with inactive PAN card, Income Tax Department told the way

ITR Filing: Even if you have not linked PAN with Aadhaar, you can file ITR with an inactive PAN card. Here is the way how this work can be done.

Income Tax Department: If you have not linked Aadhaar with PAN card by 30 June 2023 or have forgotten, then your PAN card has been deactivated. In such a situation, the Income Tax Department has informed that even if you have an inoperative PAN card, you can still file ITR. The last date for filing income tax return is 31 July. After this, permission will be given to file the return with penalty.

The tax department has informed on its website that income tax return can be filed even when Aadhaar is not linked to PAN or when PAN has become inoperative. The Income Tax Department said that file your ITR as soon as possible.

How to file ITR with inoperative PAN card

According to experts, the ITR e-filing portal does not make it mandatory for a person to link his PAN with Aadhaar while filing ITR. This means that even if you have not yet linked your PAN with Aadhaar, the ITR e-filing portal will not stop you from filing your income tax return at any point of time.

Experts say that even if PAN is inoperative, there is no difference in the process of filing ITR. One can login to their account on the Income Tax e-filing portal. After logging in, first go to e-File and then go to Income Tax Return, after which you can start the process of filing ITR. Anyone with a PAN card can start this process.

Must verify within 30 days

If you have filed the return then it is mandatory to verify the ITR. The Income Tax Department law allows verification within 30 days of filing ITR. If it is not verified within 30 days, then your income tax return will not be considered as filed.

Aadhaar will not be verified with OTP

If the PAN card has been deactivated and ITR has been filed with it, then you cannot verify it with Aadhaar OTP, because your PAN is not linked to Aadhaar. One can use other verification methods like sending a signed copy of ITR V to CPC, Bangalore or verify through net banking, ATM etc. for ITR verification.

Will not get refund

According to tax experts, if your PAN is not linked to Aadhaar, you can file ITR, but you will not be eligible for refund. This means that refund and interest on tax refund will not be issued by the tax department.
