How to find Income Tax Assessing Officer (AO) details?

A taxpayer is assigned a jurisdictional Assessing Officer (AO) based on the address mentioned on the taxpayer’s PAN. Consequently, any communication between the Income Tax Department (ITD) and the taxpayer is conducted through this jurisdictional Assessing Officer. Therefore, it is crucial to find the AO details when making a PAN application.

The Assessing Officer serves as the primary representative of the Income Tax Department and handles all direct tax-related matters for the taxpayer. This includes addressing concerns such as the rectification of returns, issuance of refunds, and other queries related to income tax.
