Tax Deduction Account Number (TAN) is an only one of its kind 10 digit alphanumeric code allotted by the Income Tax Department to all those persons who are required to deduct tax at the source of income. It is mandatory to quote TAN on all TDS returns or any TDS imbursement challan. These applications are digitized by NSDL and forwarded to the Income Tax Department, like the PAN applications. The Income Tax Department will issue the TAN, which will be closed to NSDL online. On the foundation of this, NSDL will issue the TAN letter to the applicant.
Now, Tan Registration procedure is working well. I have completed whole procedure and achieved fvu file through this procedure. No doubt it is lengthy procedure but works. In my view there may be short procedure to download the FVU file. In case you have not your complete data in soft or hard copy, you cannot collect fvu file through this procedure. It is well recognized that correction statement cannot be filed without having fvu files. Therefore it is second source to collect file. First easy source is to collect fvu file is through Nodal Center chosen by Income Tax Department.
