To link your PAN (Permanent Account Number) with Aadhaar, you can follow these steps:
- Visit the Income Tax Department’s e-Filing portal at https://www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in/
- Click on the “Link Aadhaar” option under the “Quick Links” section on the left-hand side of the page.
- Enter your PAN, Aadhaar number, and name as per Aadhaar.
- If there is a minor mismatch in your name as per PAN and Aadhaar, you can still proceed with the linking process after confirming that the Aadhaar details match your actual details.
- Click on the “Link Aadhaar” button.
After successful validation, your Aadhaar will be linked with your PAN.
The last date to link your PAN with Aadhaar was previously extended several times, and as of now, there is no deadline announced by the government. However, it is always advisable to link your PAN with Aadhaar as soon as possible to avoid any inconvenience or penalties in the future.
The last date to link PAN with Aadhaar has been extended to June 30, 2023.
