We will present 4 possible scenarios if your PAN Card is still not linked with Aadhaar
The deadline to link Aadhaar Card with PAN Card for every tax ayer ends today. And to be honest, no one knows what will happen next if your PAN Card is still not linked with Aadhaar.
We will present 4 possible scenarios of such case.
Meanwhile, Income Tax Dept. has launched a new feature, using which anyone can generate ePAN, without any document. That too instantly!
PAN-Aadhaar Deadline Expires Today!
June 30th was the last date provided by the Income Tax Dept. to every taxpayer, in order to link their Aadhaar with PAN Card.
There has been no official statement from the IT Dept. regarding what will happen if your PAN Card is still not linked.
Here are 4 possible scenarios:
- After July 1st, your PAN Card will become invalid, and you won’t be able to login to the Income Tax website to perform any activity. This is the worst possible outcome we are expecting.
- If your PAN Card becomes invalid, you won’t be able to file any tax returns, and this can become a serious issue.
- Third possible scenario is that you can file your return, but it won’t be processed, as your PAN Card is not linked with Aadhaar.
- And lastly, the most optimistic scenario: The deadline is extended, and you will be able to file the returns, and login to the IT Dept. website.
As per some experts and tax analysts, in all likelihood, CBDT will extend the deadline, otherwise it can pose some serious issues.
However, the fact is that, under Section 139AA (2) of the Income Tax Act, your PAN Card can become invalid, incase it is not linked with Aadhaar.
We are still waiting for any update from Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) on this matter. Meanwhile, we will advise you to link your PAN Card with Aadhaar immediately, and avoid any hassles later.
