Today One of my Friend asked me About the AO CODE and Income Tax ward and I have no Answer that What is it.So I digged over Internet and Found the Information on official Site of Ministry of Finance (Department of Revenue) (incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in).
How to Know Your AO CODE Income Tax ward/circle with PAN Card Number:
You can Check your Ward/circle by just Entering your PAN CARD number.With the increasing usage of Internet for Income Tax related work including tasks such as applying for PAN / TAN or filing Income Tax return, the common problem being faced by many taxpayers/ assessees is how to find out their particular Circle/ Ward/ Range in which they need to file return with or are assessed with.
Normally, this information is provided by your advocate or CA, however the same details can be easily found out on the official websites.Application of PAN – the link used is https://tin.tin.nsdl.com/pan/servlet/AOSearch
In this link, applicants can find the Assessing Officer code on the basis of their city and the address.
In case of TAN, https://tin.tin.nsdl.com/tan/servlet/TanAOSearch is used for finding out the AO Code.
For further details regarding finding out the assessing officer, an interactive guide is at http://www.incometaxindia.gov.in/ao/firstlevel.asp Here one can find their exact details on the basis of their address, income level, sources of income and other parameters.
