    hi Rachana,

    Instead of Date of incorporation, please try with the date of allotment of TAN No. I think you can definetely register your TAN Account.

    But you need to find the Date of allotment of your TAN No.

  5. Venu Chaganti says:

    I also tried regestering my TAN No in Income tax e filing website but it is saying invalid data of incorporation. But i have give the correct date of incorporation.

    Dear Rachana,

    Please let me also know if you found the solution for the registration
