What is TAN? Who requires TAN?

Hey @Sofiyah_Valiante ,

TAN is the short form for Tax Deduction and Collection Account Number.
It is a 10 digit alphanumeric number. The first 3 alphabets represent the jurisdiction code, 4th alphabet is the initial of the name of the holder who can be a company, firm, individual, etc.
It is to be obtained by all persons who are responsible for deducting tax at source (TDS) or who are required to collect tax at source (TCS).
