1. What Is PAN?

Permanent Account Number (PAN) is a ten-digit alphanumeric number, issued in the form of a laminated card, by the Income Tax
Department, to any “person” who applies for it or to whom the department allots the number without an application.
PAN enables the department to link all transactions of the “person” with the department. These transactions include tax
payments, TDS/TCS credits, returns of income/wealth/gift/FBT, specified transactions, correspondence, and so on. PAN, thus,
acts as an identifier for the “person” with the tax department.
PAN was introduced to facilitates linking of various documents, including payment of taxes, assessment, tax demand, tax arrears
etc. relating to an assessee, to facilitate easy retrieval of information and to facilitate matching of information relating to
investment, raising of loans and other business activities of taxpayers collected through various sources, both internal as well as
external, for detecting and combating tax evasion and widening of tax base.
A typical PAN is AFZPK7190K.
First three characters i.e. “AFZ” in the above PAN are alphabetic series running from AAA to ZZZ
