Registering on TDS TRACES Website


TRACES (TDS Reconciliation Analysis and Correction Enabling System) is a helpful online tool for sorting out taxes. It’s mainly used for checking if the right amount of tax has been taken from people’s earnings (TDS) and also if the right amount of tax has been collected (TCS). This tool is a big help in making sure taxes are paid correctly and in line with the rules.

Now, let’s talk about who needs to use TRACES. Well, if you’re in charge of taking out taxes from people’s income and giving that money to the government, you’re a “deductor,” and you have to register on TRACES. This applies to lots of folks, like government offices, businesses, and anyone who’s been audited under the Income Tax Act. If you handle more than 20 tax records in a quarter, you also need to sign up.

To sign up as a Deductor on TRACES, follow these simple steps:

1. Go to the TRACES website.
2. Click on “Register as New User.”
3. Choose ‘Deductor’ as your type.
4. Put in your Tax Deduction and Collection Account Number (TAN) and click “Proceed.”
5. Check your TAN details and click “Proceed” again.
6. Fill in all the info they ask for.
7. Hit the “Submit” button to finish.
8. Look for a confirmation email, and click the link inside to activate your account.
9. After that, you can log in as a Deductor on TRACES.

Now, if you’re the one who had tax taken out of your income, you’re a “Taxpayer.” You can also register on TRACES to keep track of your tax details. Here’s how:

1. Visit the TRACES website.
2. Click “Register as New User.”
3. Pick “Taxpayer” as your type.
4. Enter your PAN (Permanent Account Number) details, like your birthdate and name.
5. Add the details of the tax that was taken out of your income and any other required info.
6. Click “Create Account” when you’re done.
7. Double-check everything on the confirmation screen.
8. If needed, make changes using the edit option.
9. Confirm your info, and you’ll get an activation link and code by email and text.
10. Use the link and code to activate your TRACES account.

Lastly, there’s the Pay and Accounts Office (PAO). They’re the ones responsible for reporting tax deductions made by government offices within a specific time frame. PAOs use TRACES to register, check on the status of tax reports, and see important info about government offices linked to their account. This helps keep track of tax data.

Here’s how a PAO can register on TRACES:

1. Go to the TRACES website.
2. Click “Register as New User.”
3. Select “PAO” as your type.
4. Enter your special Accounts Office Identification Number (AIN).
5. Add either the Receipt Number of 24G or the AIN Registration Number with TIN.
6. Share your organization’s details and address.
7. Create a user ID and password.
8. You’ll get an activation link in your email and activation codes through email and text.
9. Click the link within 48 hours and enter the code from the email and text.
10. Once you’ve done these steps, you’re all set up on TRACES!

In conclusion, TRACES is a handy tool for sorting out taxes, and different folks need to register depending on their role – Deductors, Taxpayers, and Pay and Accounts Offices. Just follow these easy steps, and you’ll be good to go!

I have recently registered a Private Limited firm and was looking for a CA to take care of the filings, Startup India Certificate, and other formalities. I have received emails from legal Suvidha and a few others. I tried talking to them all. But, Mr. Mayank from Legal Suvidha was very impressive and was patient enough, prompt to answer all the queries. He has a very professional team and after the initial formalities, I started interacting with the team. It's not even 2 weeks but I really feel overwhelmed by their service and professionalism. I received my startup India certificate yesterday and my filings have been done promptly. The team at legal suvidha Ms. Nidhi, Ms. Priyanka, Ms. Koshika, and Ms. Saloni all show the same professionalism and are readily available to take care of the official filings and stuff. Overall a great experience till now and looking forward to a great journey!
