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.

Hi Abbas,

 

I have checked your account and it looks like your PAN is currently on a pending verification status. Please note that we cannot directly verify your tax information. Once you add the information to your Upwork account, we submit it to the Indian Tax authorities for verification. If you added your PAN number, it was accepted, and you didn't get an error message, you're all set. There is no further action needed on your end.

Thanks for the reply Arjay, I have seen this script before on other threads also but nowhere is mentioned how much time it exactly takes to get verified?

 

Some of them have been waiting for months as pending verification. Does that mean I'll end up paying 5% TDS for the rest of this life and 1% is just smoke and mirrors?

Hi Abbas,

 

Please note that you already get the reduced withholding tax of 1% regardless of the PAN "Pending Verification" status.

Hi,

Did anyone from India face an issue with PAN verification? I am not able to get my PAN verified, though my PAN was active until recently.

my pan is also not verified from your side

Hi Vaibhav,

 

Thanks for reaching out. Sorry, we cannot directly verify your tax information. Once you add the information to your Upwork account, we submit it to the Indian Tax authorities for verification. If you've managed to add either your PAN number successfully, i.e. it was accepted and you didn't get an error message, you're good to go! No further action on the Upwork platform is necessary.

 

Thank you,

Pradeep

yes i am also faceing the same issue

Hi
I am having the same issue. Can someone help to know how my PAN number will be verified on Upwork?

Hi Urwashi,

 

Thank you for your message. I checked and I see that you have not filled the Legal Taxpayer Name section. Could you please delete the PAN details and try entering the PAN number again along with the Legal Taxpayer Name that matches the name on the PAN card and Upwork account?

 

Thank you,

I have submitted the PAN Card twice with proper details. But it's not verified from last two months. It's causing extra deduction from my Available Money. What could be the reason for the PAN Card not getting verified as I have filled every detail with precision.
