How to know PAN, File IT return, Open Acknowledgement of HUF if incorporation date in PAN card mentioned as ANCESTRAL
Recently I have faced a very interesting situation. I have to file ITR of one of my client online. My client is a HUF and his turnover is more then Tax Audit limit so as per Income tax circular, I was required to file his Income Tax Return online. While filling ITR I needed his date of birth or say incorporation date so I checked his PAN card to know the same as per Income Tax Record, when I checked the PAN card the date of birth mentioned on it was for my surprise written as “ANCESTRAL”.
Now I got confused what date should I write on ITR to validate it for generating XML file and to upload the same on Income tax website. I have tried the popular trick of writing the date of incorporation as 01-01-0001 but when I tried to validate it said that it’s not the valid date.
As last date for Audit filing is coming closer so I was not having the option to enquire with Assessing officer of my client or to write a mail to department or to use the trick which I mentioned earlier in my post titled “ How to know Date of birth on PAN Card ”. So what’s the solution to the problem no need to loose heart I have the solution for such situation which is given below:-
1. I mentioned the date of birth in ITR as the date of birth of Oldest Child of my client.
2. Generated ITR and UPLOADED the same on Income tax website. Please note Income Tax department website do not match the date of birth in ITR with date of birth as per their records.
3. Downloaded ITR acknowledgement.
Now here arise the question how to open ITR acknowledgement, which requires password to open and password is combination Pan (in small letters) and date of birth.
In such cases we can use the date of birth as 01/01/0001 so if Pan is AAAAA0000A then Password to open the ITR acknowledgement will be aaaaa0000a01010001.
