Sometime my professional colleague may have met an Assessee who might have to register his PAN with Department without confirming the activation link and in cases where no online return has been filed by such Assesse. When my professional colleague go to file Income Tax Return of such assessee and write PAN as ID , a message come “please contact 18001801961”. In such circumstances he/she has to contact on the above said number which may not be possible for assesse due to practical difficulties.
The above said problem is due to non-validation of activation link at the time of registering the PAN with the Department. In this case, we can get the account activated by writing an email with following details to firstname.lastname@example.org :-
Within the 24 hour you get the reply of confirmation of activation of user ID. You will receive the following reply from Department:-
“Your e-filing account is activated successfully. Kindly login using your PAN, e-filing loging password and DOB/DOI along with CAPTCH code. Kindly use the password reset option available in e-filing website if you have forgotten your password.”
I hope this will be helpful to many my professional colleague/taxpayers.
