Know Your Jurisdictional Assessing Officer for Your Pan Card

Know Your Jurisdictional Assessing Officer for Your PAN Card: PAN stands for “Permanent Account Number.” It is a 10-character alphanumeric code that is unique. The Indian Government’s Income Tax Department gives you this ID. To successfully stop tax evasion, it is mainly used to monitor money transactions.

What is PAN Jurisdiction?

According to the PAN database, each PAN card is linked to an AO Code comprising 10 numbers. This unique code, which comes with your PAN, can tell you the Commissioner’s Charge, Chief Commissioner Region, Joint Commissioner Range, and the place and title of the Assessing Officer (AO).

Each PAN holder is given a different number based on their source of income and where they live. Within these groups, several units are called circles or wards.

The ward you get will depend on your money, but there is a cap. You will be given a sub-jurisdiction if you claim less than the specific limit. You will be in a circle if you reveal more than a certain amount.

Remember that your AO code may change if you move elsewhere. To change your AO code, you must apply to a new AO.
