What is TAN and how do I apply for it offline?


I have just started with a small business and I want to know about TAN.


TAN or Tax Deduction and Collection Account Number is a 10-digit number required by individuals responsible to deduct and collect the tax.It is a number which is required by every businessman while paying salaries to the employees.

If you want to apply for TAN offline, you will first have to download the form 49B online. Then you will have to fill the application form correctly and submit it to a TIN facilitation center along with a copy of your identity and address proof.
