Unable to verify your Tax ID number on Upwork

Please check my Legal Taxpayer Name. Now I verified the legal name and PAN number. Please check and approve.

Hi Abdul, 

 

The TAX ID (PAN) status is under "Pending Verification" until we have a manual verification for PAN. Once you enter a PAN number, you will automatically get a reduced withholding tax of 1% regardless of the PAN "Pending Verification" status. There is no further action needed on your end.

After re-adding the PAN number, give some time to Upwork; within a few days, it gets verified.

Hi Team,

 

I have added the PAN number. But still, it shows PAN pending verification.

 

Any other methods to complete this verification?

Hi Vishal, 

Please edit your Form W-8BEN first by clicking on the pencil icon. Once edited, please delete your Tax Identification (ID) and re-add it again. 

As for closing the client account, I'll go ahead and close your client account as requested.

I am also facing the same issue. I have deleted my Tax Identification (ID) and re-added it again. I have done that twice.  I have also been receiving my tax certificate properly from Upwork all these years at my provided PAN ID.

The added legal to your Tax Information (ID) and the Form W8-BEN both match the registered name on the PAN ID.

Received email, which says "We were unable to verify the tax ID number(s) you submitted. "
But the Tax number (PAN) is correct. What do I do? I'm in India. I have already removed my ID and resubmitted it. And, I am still receiving the same mail.

Hi,
My PAN was verified.
TDS was credited from Jul 2021 to Dec 2021 so far for current financial year.
But Apr 2021 to Jun 2021 quarter is missing. Anyone got this issue?

I got a mail this week that they couldn't verify my PAN ID. It is an unique number designated to Indian citizens for tax proposes.

 

Without this verification I'd be charged 5% TDS instead of 1%. I've been using Upwork regularly for about 9 months now and never had an issue. Please fix this.

I am an India based freelancer.

 

One of my client which is also India based is curious to know if they require to file TDS from their side. Since me as a freelancer is already subjected to 1% TDS, I am not sure if my client too needs to file TDS.

 

Can we get any help on this?

I have gone thorugh this article and that is fine for me but the verification suddenly disappreared, and now it is not verifying. So that's issue.

Sir I think I got the issue, it is due to tax name on my pan card I think. Now I have changed the name to name on PAN ID and also verified it with trace. Thanks a lot for helping out.

I am registered as a proprietor and I have GST and PAN numbers. due to proprietor, my personal PAN is my Business PAN number. but in Upwork, my PAN is not verified. Every time I add my PAN detail it gets rejected due to a miss-match name. Please give me the solution.

 I am uploading my PAN no. for TAX purpose and every time it got rejected. My PAN no. Is correct. Then why this is happening.

Hi Rohit,

 

It looks like you were able to re-add your PAN. Once you enter a PAN number, you will automatically get a reduced withholding tax of 1% regardless of the PAN "Pending Verification" status. There is no further action needed on your end.

Hi Andrea

 

But it is showing " PAN could not be verified. Please remove and Re add number to update' status every time i update it again. Please check the screenshot.

Hi Rohit,

 

I checked your account and I'm not seeing that message on my end, could you please check again? You can also try clearing your cache and cookies or logging in with a different browser to see if the issue persists.

Hello Upwork team,

Hope you all are very well.

 

I have my freelancer account. As well as an agency account. **Edited for Community Guidelines** . But I don't know why the Tax Identification > PAN is not verified. I added before once. And they are not verified. I again added. But still, after 4-5 days, it's not verifying.

 

I hurry about this because of charges. So, can you please check out why it's taking too long?

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you so much.
