I've updated my PAN number instead of my AADHAAR number. Now all WHT records will be updated in traces?
Thank you for updating your tax information. We will submit one-time corrections to the Income Tax Department in early September.
Also you mentioned that we are supposed to add our PAN and not AADHAAR, so why other moderators are saying that AADHAAR number is also fine?
Regarding the PAN vs Aadhaar question, here's the clarification we shared in the recent email - "As per Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) Notification No. 95, dated 6 November 2019, it was provided that Form 26Q (i.e., the statutory form for filing TDS statements for payments to Indian residents) is to be modified to include an “Aadhaar” field. However, as of today, Form 26Q has not been updated to include Aadhaar. If you previously provided your Aadhaar number to Upwork, your transactions could not be reported to the Indian tax authorities. We highly recommend that you provide your PAN so that we can submit your transactions to tax authorities."
Thanks for the follow-up. As long as the correct tax information is added to your Upwork account you don't need to take any other action at the moment. After the corrections in early September, you'll be able to check and confirm if the tax information you uploaded recently to your Upwork account is reflected correctly in TRACES.
Regarding the recently sent email notification, could you please check your inbox and spam folder for the email titled "India TDS (Form 26AS) update - Action required" and let me know if see it?
I have updated my tax information from Aadhar to PAN number before August 15 as suggested, but its september 14 and still Traces form doesn't show my TDS deducted by Upwork. The last date to file for income tax is 30 sept. please help.
Hi Anshul, Pratik and everyone,
As an update, amendment for transactions made from October - December 2020 was submitted early September and January - March 2021 amendment will be submitted in the coming days. Once the revised information is processed by the India tax office, information will be available to you via TRACE portal and/or revised 16A can be requested from Upwork.
Regarding the September 30th tax deadline, tax filing due date some of you have mentioned, please note that the due date has been extended. Please check the following two articles,
Since Upwork is deducting TDS on income, just want to know how can I download the TDS certificate from Upwork?
If I add my PAN or Aadhar number to Upwork, will I be able to download the certificate?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Hi Ritesh! I don't think Upwork has launched any mechanism to download TDS certificate. However, you should be able to get all the tax deducted details from Form 26AS on TRACES portal, once it's submitted to the relevant authorities by deductor (in this case Upwork)
