What is my Income Tax Ward / Circle

Almost every tax payer is struggling to supply information which they are usually unaware of.. while filing for Income Tax return. One of the basic query at very first step itself is “Income Tax Ward / Circle”.
First to educate my readers – You can efile your Income Tax Return even if you do not know your Income Tax Ward/Circle. The Income Tax eFilling portal do not force you to enter this while filing the tax return, so it is non-mandatory to fill in. You may simply leave this box blank to skip.

Alternatively You can use the “Know your Jurisdiction” tool for finding out your ward/circle at the Income Tax portal.

You just need to enter the  PAN number to find the jurisdiction details.
