Income Tax: FAQs On Form 10B

FAQ 1: I am trying to file and submit Form 10B. However, upon submission, the page displays the following error “INVALID FORMAT FOR ARN”. What should I do?

Ans: Before filing Form 10B, please update your profile from the “My Profile” section and ensure that all mandatory fields (Mobile Number with country code, Email and Designation of the person to whom it belongs, Country, Flat/Door/Building, Pin code/Zip code, Post office, Area/Locality, District/City, State) are filled. Try not to use special characters while filling the address section. Also ensure that that the key person who will be appointed as principal contact and authorized to e-verify are chosen correctly. Ensure all the details such as PAN, Name, designation, DIN, Residential status, mobile number along with country code, email id and other mandatory details are updated. Also, verify whether the status of the DSC registered is appearing as ‘Yes’ (if the mode of filing is through DSC). After updating your profile details, you can re-login and try again.
