Register CA on Income Tax E-filing Portal

To upload the Tax Audit Report for their clients, a Chartered Accountant (CA) in practice must register on the Income Tax e-Filing Portal as a Tax Professional. This involves creating a professional account specifically for this purpose, as individual accounts cannot be used by professionals such as CAs for tax-related submissions.

The updated portal offers registered users the ability to:

  1. View a list of their authorized Chartered Accountants (CAs).
  2. Assign forms to a CA for handling.
  3. Withdraw assigned forms from a CA.
  4. Activate a CA for collaboration.
  5. Deactivate a CA if necessary.

Prerequisites for registering a CA on the Tax e-Filing portal include:

  1. CA Membership Number.
  2. Enrollment Date for CA registration.
